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.
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".ReplyDelete
At our school, it's only for kindergarten students. I would have loved it if we have it too as I love reading.Delete

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...ReplyDelete
It is definitely something every school should have. Reading is good for us all.ReplyDelete
Wonderful, reading is a good habit.ReplyDelete

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. xxReplyDelete
I wonder if Pizza Hut Philippines is doing the same thing because if they do, I will surely get one for my son.ReplyDelete
Reading is a beneficial habit especially on kids mare. Keep it up little ones!ReplyDelete
Reading books is always good for children ! It enlarges the vocabulary.ReplyDelete
Even with the use of high technology as a reading materials. I much prefer reading books because kids will enjoyed every pages that they will going to read. I am also teaching my daughter on how to read letters and numbers.ReplyDelete
Good job i enjoy watching my boy reading. Kids these days are very smart!ReplyDelete
Hope I can join this meme tomorrow.ReplyDelete
How old are your kids? At what age did they both learn how to read?
Wow pizza do that sponsoring that kind of program.I do not know if we have that here I will try to ask...My son likes books too...ReplyDelete
I will join this meme next week mommy or i will try if i can do it this week. Anyway, that so good that your kids are fond of reading a bible, my son too. But sometimes, he would just keep asking me whose Jesus, God, Jonah, Mary hehehe....so I have to start the genesis!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
I wish schools here in ph will also have that program!ReplyDelete
my daughter loves to read books and we usually go to the library to get them...ReplyDelete
