I love encouraging my kids to read during the summer. What better way than FREE rewards and activities. Let me know if you find anymore. I’m sad that some of these only go up to 5th grade. My Middle school and High schooler love to read.
Barnes & Noble – Read any 8 books and record them in the reading journal between May 19th and September 7th, 2015 and get a free book from Barnes & Noble list. I’m sad my kids have outgrown the free book list, but it might be a great gift item or donation.
Book It Summer Break Sweepstakes – Sponsored by Pizza Hut. Starting June 22, encourage all kids to collectively read 1 million minutes by August 15! Kids who read 5 books by August 15 have a chance to win awesome BOOK IT! prizes.
PBS Kids Summer Reading Challenge – This one I love! It’s a DIY 10 week reading program with worksheets, games and more to keep your child entertained over the summer.
Book Adventure – is a FREE reading motivation program for children in grades K-8. Children create their own book lists from over 7,000 recommended titles, take multiple choice quizzes on the books they’ve read, and earn points and prizes for their literary successes.
Local Library – Check with your local library about reading programs in your area. Duval County Libraries are always offering activities for kids. Clay County Libraries also have a large list of Summer kids activities.
Scholastic Summer Challenge – Log your child’s reading minutes and earn virtual rewards.
