Shand – ELA: Challenge 3

Teacher: Shand "Baillargeon" (



Did you know there are 1,440 minutes in a SINGLE day?!

So, let’s do a little math here… 

The recommended hours of sleep a night for a teenager are 9 hours, which is 540 minutes a day.

1,440 minutes 540 minutes= 900 minutes

That means you are awake on average 900 minutes a day!! 


Your challenge this week is to sacrifice at least 30 of your 900 spare minutes a day to READING!


Below you will find a reading chart you will fill out for each of the next 5 days
