Read-a-Thon Wrap-Up

FIRST, enter all books that you have finished reading to the online Independent Reading Log (in the menu above).

SECOND, share your favorite Read-a-Thon title with a “notable quotable” from the book. How? Each class period will create a Powerpoint presentation that collects together the best “notable quotables” from your favorite Read-a-Thon books. Each student will be responsible for creating one slide for the presentation.

Go to your specific class period’s Powerpoint Presentation by clicking the appropriate link below:

Once you click on the link, you’ll be taken to an online Powerpoint presentation. You may be asked to log in to your Office365 account. Use your school username and password.

When you see the Powerpoint, you will be in “View Only” mode. From the top menu, click on “Edit Presentation” and choose “Edit in Powerpoint Online.” Find your assigned slide number (find your number here). Edit only that slide.

IMPORTANT: Do not change anyone else’s slide. If you accidentally edit or delete someone else’s slide, quickly “Undo” in Powerpoint (use CTRL-Z on a PC or CMD-Z on a Mac).


On your slide, include the following:

  1. An image of your book cover
  2. One notable quotable (from your index cards)
  3. Title and Author
  4. “Recommended by” with your first name and last initial and then your graduating year (i.e. “Class of”)

Some tips:

  • Try to select a quote from a book that you would recommend to others to read. These books and presentations may be featured in the school library.
  • Choose your quote wisely. The best “notable quotables” are those that will pique a reader’s interest. Be sure that it’s a quote that can stand alone and still be meaningful.
  • Use an appropriate font type and color to match your book cover design.
  • Check your spelling and punctuation.
