Book It!

I think every school in the United States has this "Book It" program where kids can read their heart out.    I believe this is only for kindergartners as the my daughter does not have this activity.

Ms. Burrito reads with him and encourage him when he doesn't feel like reading a book.  So far, we are doing good and he  can read a lot of words already.

They were given a mini booklet called the "Passport to Reading" by Pizza Hut when we first redeemed the  pizza.  Every time a student redeem one, they also get a sticker to put in the booklet.  If they complete all the sticker slots through out the  school year, the whole class will have a pizza party for free.  We failed to redeemed  the second pizza last month  but we are still reading everyday.  For us, it's not about the pizza, it's about  practicing and learning how to read.  I am glad that Pizza sponsored this program though because it encourages kids to  read.

  1. Pizza Hut has been doing this for many years. My daughter did this program in 1st,2nd, and 3rd grades. She is now 21yrs. old. At that time, upon completing the program the child got their own "Personal Pan Pizza".

  11. The child's want to read can not be encouraged enough - as parents we try to instill that, but anything that leads to the love of reading is wonderful. Nice that EJ is looking at the Bible...

  20. That is very nice that kids get to read books even "bible" ones and it is a great start for anyone. Reading is very important and having to learn how to be closer to the God almighty. xx

  29. i think this is not only for kindergarteners because my 2nd grader always getting them since Nov. it motivate him to read more books. whenever he get the the form for the month, he would read 6books right away in one night so he can get the coupon right away, and get his personal pizza the next day. =) he has this passport to read too.
