According to Purdue University, studies have shown that reading scores improve when students read to a stuffed animal! This reading incentive will have your students reading to a stuff animal each day! Included in this program are feeding books that have the students coloring a bowl of food after they read to their pet animal. There are feeding books that can be used during the school year and feeding books that can be used in the summer. You also will have your choice of recording "books" read or "minutes" read. There are letters you can send home to the parents depending on how you use this program in your classroom. I have also included cute certificates you can reward your students with after feeding their pets 100 bowls of food! They will become star owners! I have used this in my first grade classroom for two years and the students LOVE it!
