IRA and Parents.com Team Up for the Raise a Reader Program
Motivate students to read by rewarding their reading milestones. The Raise a Reader program, sponsored by Parents magazine and Parents.com, in partnership with the International Reading Association, allows students to log their reading minutes as they devour books throughout the spring. Parents.com will track which schools have the most minutes logged per student—one winning school will receive a $5,000 library grant.
The free program includes a personalized school page where teachers, students, and parents can watch their school’s progress. Online spelling games and worksheets keep it fun, and Parents.com offers recommended books for every age level. Plus, students who log at least 60 minutes of reading each week will be eligible for individual prizes.
Get more information and sign up your school for the program today. Schools can enter through February 28, and the reading begins March 8. Visit www.parents.com/reading/school to get started.
