Scholastic Free Summer Reading Program for Kids

on June 20, 2013

Scholastic Summer Reading 1

My daughter read. A LOT. She could read 5 or more chapter books a day if I let her. So for this reason I signed her up for 7 reading programs this summer. This way she gets rewards for her reading and it gets her reading stuff she might not normally choose. One of the programs I chose is the Scholastic free summer reading program. It’s done online which is fun, kids can even make their own cute avatar with a fun background. You sign your child up with a fun screen name, and then you log how many minutes they read each week. They can win badges and prizes. My daughter got a free download of a Puppy Place book as one of her prizes.

They also have a cool way to measure minutes read against landmarks, which is fun for kids to see. You also get badges each time your child’s minutes reach a certain landmark. Since kids all over the world are participating it’s fun to see the goals grow compared to the last 2 years.

This is a sample of what the badges page looks like. 🙂 If your child goes to school you can sign your child up under their school and it tally’s the school’s minutes altogether as well. Since we homeschool I signed up my daughter on her own. If you wanted to add extra incentive you could give a prize for a certain number of minutes reached. Like if they reach 2,000 minutes you will let take them to the movies, for example. The nice thing is that you can be creative with it in a way that works for your child!

What summer reading programs is your child in that you really enjoy?
