Register Your Students for Scholastic's Summer Reading Challenge

By Beth Newingham on June 8, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

The Scholastic Summer Challenge is a free reading program dedicated to stopping the "summer slide." The Summer Challenge invites kids to log the minutes they spend reading as they "Read for the World Record." The 20 schools with the most minutes logged will be recognized in that year's Scholastic Book of World Records. Kids can participate in weekly challenges, earn digital rewards, enter sweepstakes to win fabulous prizes, find great books to read, and more.

Students can also join reading programs at their local library and bookstores, such as Barnes and Noble's Imagination's Destination.

I registered my class last week and the Educator link worked fine; but today I can't seem to go back onto that page. The link just reverts back to the original page. Help?

I can't seem to find where to register students

On the summer Reading Challenge stats - what do the circles mean? teardrop is your school's minutes and ranking, the star is the top 20 schools, but it doesn't say what the circles represent and I can't find it anywhere. Thanks

This is not easy. It keeps looping around, papge to page. but where do I register their names??

Did you ever figure out how to add student names? I can't figure it out?

went to the site to register my class and it just loops to the original link for parents/teachers/ and parents

I try to get my students to read 20 minutes 3-5 days a week.

I like to read each evening 30 minutes
