Exciting news about the Summer Reading Challenge !
We all know that kids reading all summer is a priority, but motivating kids to read all summer can be a challenge.
That’s why Scholastic is excited to announce the 8th annual Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge – a free online reading program where kids can read what THEY want, and log their reading minutes to earn rewards and help set a new world record for summer reading. It is a fun and friendly competition among schools to see who can read the most – and the school that logs the most minutes at the end of the summer, wins a visit from bestselling authors: David Shannon (elementary school prize) and Gordon Korman (middle school prize).
Starting TODAY, parents and teachers can register their kids for the 2014 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge at scholastic.com/summer.
To help parents prepare for summer, Scholastic is hosting a live Facebook Live Chat (via Scholastic Parents Facebook) moderated by Lori Ess (Scholastic) and Betsy Bird (New York Public Library), on Monday, May 5th at 9 PM (ET), titled: “A Virtual Book Swap on Summer Reading.” Please help us make 2014 the biggest Summer Reading Challenge EVER by sharing with your readers.
And be sure to like us on Facebook:facebook.com/scholasticparents ! We’ll have free resources PLUS sweepstakes every !
Thanks Scholastic for a fun challenge for the kids.
