PageTurners is a literature-based competition for students in grades 3-12. Wayland-Cohocton Elementary participates in Chapter 1 (grades three and four). WC sends teams from the Wayland building and teams from the Cohocton building to two competitions each year. Two teams of six students per building prepare to answer questions by reading the books on the Official List of Titles, which is prepared by a committee of teachers and librarians. In a round-robin format, teams compete with nearby schools, and division winners advance to a region-wide final tournament. Winning teams are recognized with plaques. All participants receive certificates.
Students participating in PageTurners may read up to 14 books each semester. Audio books and iPods are available through the Media Library at Genesee Valley BOCES. Students are encouraged to participate in writing questions for competitions. In the Wayland Elementary building the group meets every Monday morning at 7:30 a.m. The Wayland Team also has a lab during the week to read, write questions or discuss and review the books. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Hartzell (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs. Maker (email@example.com) or by calling (585) 728-3547.
