Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge


Scholastic always offers some great resources to parents and educators to encourage kids to read or to enhance their reading experience.  I have posted about a few of these in the past.  I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about their 8th Summer Reading Challenge

The Challenge runs from May 5th to September 5th and they are hoping to set a world record with minutes read.  There are 3 ways you can participate:

  • Kids – they can log in (with a parent’s help) and log the number of minutes they read this summer.  They can answer challenge questions to earn virtual rewards.  And as greater encouragement – every time they reach a weekly milestone they can enter a giveaway to win some awesome books.  Their reading minutes can also count toward their school’s reading total.
  • Educators (with a Scholastic account) – you can register your students and track their reading progress; discover free resources and book lists; and have a chance to win 50 books for you classroom or school library.
  • Parents: you can help your children read with various resources and a reading time app.  There are also free book lists, activities, and out tips. 

Here are some of the tools that you might find useful with your young reader:
