LitWorld's Executive Director, Pam Allyn, recently shared tips to motivate children for summer reading with Scholastic's Instructor Magazine. Here are her key strategies to give every child a reading plan for the summer and an equal chance to succeed.
1. Take the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge
The Common Core State Standards are challenging schools nationwide to raise the bar. I love the playful nature of the Scholastic Summer Challenge to enroll every classroom in this mission. Beginning May 6, kids of all ages can track their reading minutes online (at scholastic.com/summer) to earn rewards for themselves and their school. Let’s get our students ready to reach their own goals.
Friendly competition gives children something to strive for, and the Summer Challenge also invites them to work in teams and be part of something bigger than themselves.
