Thought for Thursday: Summer Reading Programs

Are your children participating in a summer reading program? If so, where is the program? How is it going? Does it motivate your child to read more in the summer? Chime in. I'd love to know your thoughts!


  1. We are doing a summer readaing program. JDaniel knows he got to go to the water park and get free ice cream because, I read to him. We would read about a hour a day anyway.

  2. Hi Jackie! Saw you left comments at waddlee-ah-chaa. Guess what, I'm a former Reading Recovery Teacher turned homeschool Mommy. We love books over at waddlee-ah-chaa too. Each week we highlight and giveaway great children's literature!:) Looks like we have a lot in common.

    Back to your post . . .
    We read all of the time for enjoyment. Additionally, my 7-year-old son is reading to earn shopping cards at Half Price Books (here in Texas). It is a great deal. Every week he reads at least 15 minutes a day he receives a $3.00 shopping card for the week. He's already earned $15.00 worth of shopping. So he's picking out new books to read! How fun!:)
