Halfway through my Summer Series, and this week's focus is a challenge that just started today. It is a free online reading program for students. It lasts from May 4 to September 4. Parents, if you sign your kids up for it, you can get free book lists, activities, and tips. Students can unlock stories and earn rewards as they log their reading.
All you have to do is go to the Scholastic website to sign up today! You enter your birth date and then get directed to a screen to register your child. Along the bottom of the screen you get daily reading tips. Today it is "5 Tips for Building a Reading List for Advanced Readers".
You then register your reader. The next screen will lead you through some different information regarding the program. You will see a "Register Here" or "Login", you will want to register. There is a quirky way to get a screen name for this program that is kind of fun! Then it allows you to create your password. You can choose to link your child to the school, but that is up to you.
You are then registered. There is a main screen where you log your minutes for the day and it totals it. Kids can earn different badges, invite their friends (think, challenges), and play reading games.
This is another wonderful way to encourage reading and do it in a fun way! Good luck and happy reading!
