Reach for the Stars - Reading Incentive Program
Reach for the Stars is a pledge-based reading incentive program that encourages children to read daily! It's a Read-A-Thon where the kids read and collect pledges based on their minutes. The money collected is used to buy books for the kids (plus incentives) and books or money for the school.
What is the goal of the program?
The goal of Reach for the Stars is for children to read - or be read to - for 300 minutes over a two week period of time.
Who can participate?
This program is designed to benefit any organization of kids, from schools, extended care programs, individual classrooms, clubs, preschools, church groups, home school groups, charities, and public libraries.
How does the program work?
Parents and children ask friends, family, people they know to sponsor their reading time by pledging a flat amount or a per minute amount. Children keep track of their minutes read and turn in their log and their pledges at the end of two weeks.
How do the kids benefit?
They develop the important habit of daily reading and receive Usborne & Kane Miller books and other prizes for participating. The Reach For The Stars program helps children discover the joy of reading and lets them choose their books to add to their bookshelves!
How can your school benefit?
Reach for the Stars has a flexible option to meet your needs - books for the library and classrooms, or cash for your school budget, or a combination of both. For example,
