For the Love of Reading
In line with our goal for children to love reading, we have started an incentive program for our elementary students. For every 15 minutes of reading, they get a sticker. For every 10 stickers they get a prize. Since we implemented the system, kids run in asking for books, “Can I please read before my homework?!” It’s a precious and beautiful step towards a culture of literacy in our program.
In a world of screens and cords, there’s nothing quite like a kid excited to read a book.
