Reading is Rewarding (Summer Reading Incentive Programs)

It’s summer, and as a mother and teacher I know the importance of having kids continue reading during their months off of school, but it is NOT always easy.  As adults we know reading is rewarding, but now we can reward them for reading as well. There are several opportunities provided throughout the community to reward kids for reading, so make sure to share these with your kids and students in order to keep them motivated about reading during the summer months.



When kids read 8 books, they get to choose a FREE book from a list at their store.  This is a great way to build your home library, or donate the new FREE book to your new teacher.




This program is just like the Barnes and Noble reading challenge. When kids read 8 books, they get to choose a FREE book from a list at their store.  It does state on their website that supplies are limited, so I would call before heading out.




TD Bank PAYS kids to read 10 books! They receive $10 into a new or existing Young Saver account after reading 10 books, printing out their Summer Reading Form, and taking the form to the nearest TD Bank branch.




The reader will receive 10 FREE tokens at Chuck E. Cheese each time they read for 2 weeks in a row. Head on over to their website to print the form. It states it is valid through 12/31/14 at participating locations. Food purchase required for redemption. Limit 1 of any free token offer per child per day.



Local Library Systems:

Most local library systems have some sort of summer reading challenge available. Make sure to check out their website and see what they have to offer.

Like always, feel free to add any other ideas or suggestions in the comment boxes below. I love to hear from you!

Happy reading!



Your Thrifty Co-Teacher,

  1. Wow...thanks for sharing this. I didn't realize that Pottery Barn Kids had a program for summer reading. This a great list to have.

    1. You're welcome. I usually try to write the list up for my students before school ends in hopes that it will inspire them to keep reading. I also use it to force (I mean, inspire) my own kids to read. ;)
