I am a lover of shoes. I love cheap ones. Expensive ones. Cute ones. High heeled ones. Flip flops. All kinds of shoes. But mostly I love comfortable shoes that look good as well!...
Read More with the Monday Minutes Goal from Scholastic
We are avid readers in this family. However, I have to actively encourage my children to read. I print out checklists. I buy them every book they ask for and we even designate how many minutes everyone will read each week. Scholastic has teamed up with the Energizer Bunny this summer to encourage kids to read even more.
In an effort to log as many minutes as possible through the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge AND to break the world record for summer reading, Scholastic is setting special weekly goals for young readers. Every Monday we’ll be announcing a #MondayMinutesGoal, the number of minutes for kids to read together in one week (by the following Monday).
Whether your child or student is reading independently aloud or together with you, let’s share their success and keep the momentum going! Here’s how:
- Have your child log his/her minutes on the SRC website or on a paper log/piece of paper
- Take a picture of him/her proudly displaying their minutes
- Share it on social using #MondayMinutesGoal and #SummerReading!

Now in its 9th year, the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is a free online reading program dedicated to stopping the “summer slide” by encouraging kids to read throughout the summer months when school is out. This year’s challenge theme is “Power Up & Read,” powered by ENERGIZER®.
This year’s challenge theme is “Power Up & Read,” encouraging kids to read all summer long and unlock 12 original short stories by bestselling children’s authors as kids reach reading milestones.
