This Summer Reading post and giveaway are sponsored by Scholastic, but all thoughts are my own.
This summer has taken us ALL over the place, from Maryland to Florida to Utah to Colorado….and lots of places in between. We’ve had a bunch of adventures, and we’ve taken our books along with us for even more adventures…of a different kind. Even when we’re resting our bodies after summer-time adventures like hikes and hands-on museums and water parks, we can keep our minds active by reading good books.
My oldest son doesn’t go anywhere without his book – he even brings it along to museums (“just in case,” he says). And, yes, we’ve brought our Energizer Bunny® in the car everywhere we’ve gone. Here are just a few places that I’ve caught my kids reading the past few weeks…
Where have you caught your kids reading this summer?
About The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge & ENERGIZER® Partnership
Earlier this summer, I told you about the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge and all of the amazing resources that are available for parents and kids to enjoy reading this summer. As a quick recap, the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is a free online reading program dedicated to stopping the “summer slide” by encouraging kids to read throughout the summer months when school is out. This year’s challenge theme is “Power Up & Read,” powered by ENERGIZER®.
ENERGIZER® has joined Scholastic this summer 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 through September 4, 2015 (so even if the summer is half over, it’s not too late to enjoy the summer reading program!
To encourage and help young readers log as many minutes as possible through the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge AND to break the world record for summer reading, Scholastic is setting special weekly goals. Every Monday they’re announcing a #MondayMinutesGoal, the number of minutes for kids to read together in one week (by the following Monday).
It’s easy to participate! All you have to do is read (independently or together) and then…
- Have your child log his/her minutes on the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge website or on a paper log/piece of paper (check out my post for printables)
- Take a picture of him/her proudly displaying their minutes
- Share it on social using #MondayMinutesGoal and #SummerReading!
