The 20 schools with the most minutes will be featured in the 2013 Scholastic Book of World Records.

I came across this by accident. I was browsing apps on my iphone and found a Scholastic timer so I downloaded it. DD has to read for school. I have told her I still want her to read in the summer also. I am glad I found this because now she is excited to read this summer. They read, log in their minutes and win prizes.

Kids lose so much ground on their reading skills over the summer. That's a great way to motivate them to keep reading.

Check with your local library as well. There are frequently summer reading programs that integrate activities, games and prizes

Our school has one day a week when for a few hrs kids can come to the compute lab to take AR tests on books they are reading in the summer.

My boys take part in this as well as a list I provide them with to read. They love to read more than watching TV.
