Product Description
It is every teacher’s challenge to find ways to encourage your students to read at home. We have developed a n Incentive plan to help you with this challenge.

Teachers often ask their students to read a certain number of minutes at home so why not include their families too!? As children read at home they can also spot an adult, older sibling, babysitter or grandparent reading, as well.

We have included two "Gathering Song" ideas for your classroom. Your class will have fun singing this short simple song and know it is time to begin reading.
Each morning, to begin our reading for the day, we drop buttons, cotton balls, plastic cubes etc. in our Reading-At-Home Jar. It is intended that this object be readily available to you and your children so keep it simple to manage. This is a fun idea that will encourage reading outside of school. We suggest that children drop 1 object in the jar for every 15 minutes they read and can add more if someone else read at home too! When our jar is full, we celebrate our great reading by stopping and taking a moment or two to recognize our good job. You can make this as involved as you wish-from a cheer for our great job to a treat for everyone or even a new book for the class! This Reading-At -Home Jar will reinforce the habit of leisure reading.
