Read for the World Record

        As summer quickly approaches I wanted to let everyone out there know about a way to encourage your students to read over the summer.  That's right, read while not at school!  It is through our great friends at scholastic and it is none other than:
All you have to do is go to register your class and then your students can log their summer reading and have an opportunity to earn prizes.  While we teachers know that the ultimate prize is reading and the adventure, mysteries, knowledge, etc. . . that accompanies it.  But for those kiddos that might need a little more motivation this is where the tangible prizes come into play.  According to the Scholastic website in Summer 2011, students around the world logged 64,213,141 reading minutes.  This year let's see if we can top that!!!
