If you are looking for a way to motivate kids to read more, here is a cool website for that!
Reading Rewards is a tool to keep track of what and how much you are reading. You can find the books that you are reading from Amazon (like that you can create your online library) and add them in your reading log. Then, every day you write the minutes and the number of the pages that you have read. If you like, you can add your reviews and your rate with your comments on your log. You can create a wish list of the books that you would like to read too.
Also, as you read, you earn RR miles which you can spend by getting a Joke or Riddle of the day. Or, parents/teachers can add some rewards as well!
You also earn badges as you read books. The first badge is the Newbie Logger! That’s super cool!
First of all, it is a great way to motivate kids to read. Teachers can create their own classes and moderate how much the students are reading. Teacher can also set goals for students.
It is also a great way for kids to compare themselves with others on how much reading they do. They can also recommend books to each other. Great networking for kids!
I really like the way teachers/parents can set some rewards for kids. The rewards can be a day without homework, or a few extra minutes to spend with their tablets.
