Now that we are approaching the end of the 2008-2009 school year, some students are counting the days before summer vacation begins; at least that is the situation with my school aged child. How do we promote learning during the summer months? Well, why not encourage students to join summer reading programs during this time. To encourage and support summer reading, various companies and libraries are offering summer reading programs or reading list and some of them have built-in incentives for reading; including one company that offers Pizza as a reward.
