The St. Louis Blues FREE reading program, Blues Bookworms, is available for all classrooms, grades K-6, that are located in the Greater St. Louis Area. The program runs October 1- January 8. *Please note all final reading minutes will need to be turned in no later than Jan. 8, unless your school resumes at a later date.
Each month, students record the number of minutes read using the Student Tracker Form provided by the Blues. Forms should be initialed by a parent/guardian and submitted to teachers. Teachers then record their classroom minutes on the Bookworms poster that the Blues will provide and submit their list of total classroom minutes online to the Blues each month using the downloadable Classroom Tracker.
After winter break on January 8th, teachers will submit the names and total number of minutes read by their students (in addition to the number of minutes read Dec.1-Jan.8).
Every classroom that participates will receive bookmarks for each student and a Bookworms poster for the classroom!
How students SCORE!
Students that read a total of 1,000 minutes or more will score with a buy one, get one ticket voucher to the Blues Bookworms game on Monday, Feb. 22. Those students will be recognized as a group on the Scottrade Center scoreboard and will have the opportunity shoot on goal after the game. If you cannot make the designated Bookworms game then a backup game will be provided on Thursday, Feb 18, but there will be no shoot on goal after the game.
A special ticket discount will be available for family members, teachers and students that did not reach 1,000 minutes.
The overall top reader from each grade will receive four (4) FREE Plaza Level Blues tickets to the scheduled Blues Bookworm Game on Feb. 22. The top readers will also be featured on the big screen during the game.
Work as a team to achieve!
Every class that reaches or goes beyond 250 minutes read per month per student will be entered into a drawing for a Blues celebrity appearance. If a classroom is selected to receive a Blues Celebrity appearance and there are multiple classrooms in that selected school enrolled in the Blues Bookworms Program, all classrooms in that school that have reached their monthly goal will be invited to participate in the visit. The more classrooms registered per school, the better the chance of receiving an appearance!
