Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

This is a free global reading program that encourages kids to read all summer long. This addition to my Summer Educational Series, keeps kids reading books and logging their reading minutes (online and on smartphones). They can enter sweepstakes to win prizes and earn digital rewards when they complete weekly reading challenges. This year’s theme is “Reading Under the Stars!” Kids will unlock constellations and learn fun facts about space as they reach reading milestones every week.

Kids 4-14 are the core ages, but if you read to your younger children, you can log reading minutes on their behalf.

You can sign up online at www.scholastic.com/summer .  Although kids can log minutes through any desktop browser,  mobile device (tablets or phones) browser, or through the free Scholastic Reading Timer mobile app on iOS and Android devices, you must register or authenticate via a desktop browser first. The website is completely kid safe as there are COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) laws that Scholastic adheres to. 

Scholastic also offers a lot great ideas through their Scholastic Parents Facebook page. Parents be sure to visit  the content calendar, it provides free daily expert tips and articles, activities, discounts on books, and special Friday giveaways.
