This is a partnered post with Scholastic.
My son says he hates to read but this morning I woke up to the sound of him reading out loud one of the books I bought him yesterday. Inside I was cheering the loudest cheers every, but the fear that if I make a big deal about it and then he remembers that he doesn’t like it made me stay quiet. I am however going to take a different approach to get him into reading this summer, I’m going to use the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge to keep him reading.
This year’s challenge theme is “Power Up & Read,” encouraging kids to read all summer long and unlock 12 original short stories by bestselling children’s authors as kids reach reading milestones. Scholastic has joined together with ENERGIZER® to power the Summer Reading Challenge and encourage families to find innovative ways to discover the power and joy of reading. Parents can sign up kids beginning May 4, 2015 and runs through September 4, 2015.
Scholastic has provided us with some tips and as I’m sharing all summer long here is the first tip:
Power Up & Read: 5 Parenting Tips for Summer Reading
Resources from Scholastic Parents:
I haven’t decided yet what their individual prizes will be, but it will be a lot of fun for each of them. We received some books from Scholastic to get a jump start on our summer reading and this was Miles’s first share on instagram
And Zoe decided to get a jump start too!
Energizer® and Scholastic are partnering to create the “Power the Possibilities” campaign which gives moms the tools they need to unlock their child’s talents, fuel their ambitions and set them up for future success. Starting May 4, 2015, parents can buy any specially marked pack of Energizer® brand batteries to scratch for a chance to win one of thousands of prizes that will power discovery and learning.
Prizes include a family trip to New York City, a Scholastic Study Corner Makeover, a tablet with Scholastic apps, a library of Scholastic books and more! Everyone who plays can also download free digital stories for their family.
