Free School Year Reading Programs
Are you looking for a free reading program for your students to join during the school year? During the summer many companies sponsor these programs but the selection is more limited during the fall and spring. Here are two free programs still available you might enjoy participating in!
Book It is a free program sponsored by Pizza Hut. This program runs from October through March 31st during the school year. You can still enroll for this year! Students from K-6 are allowed to participate. Each month, teachers set a reading goal for their students and if the student meets the goal for that month, they earn a personal pan pizza and a passport book. Each subsequent month that students meet their reading goal, students get a personal pan pizza and a stamp in their passport.
Read to Succeed is a reading program sponsored by Six Flags. Any schools that have K-6 grade students within 250 miles of a Six Flags theme park can participate. You must register by March 1, 2013. Students must complete 6 hours of recreational, non-school related reading to earn one free ticket to Six Flags. If teachers submit the reading hours of at least one student, they can also earn a free ticket!
