Another frugal, fun thing we do in the summer is reading. We join numerous reading programs.
I'm going to keep working on improving my daughter's reading skills over the summer. She loves to earn badges, so I think she will like this program I signed her up for today.
Book Adventure is a site run by Sylvan Learning. Kids sign up and read books from a long list. After they have read the book, they go to the site and take a quiz. By taking quizzes, the kids earn prizes! They can also play games on the site.
One of the prizes is a 6 month subscription to Highlights magazine!
My middle daughter did this in the fourth grade and enjoyed earning prizes. Not that she needs any motivation to read.
Many of the books on the list are books that we will be checking out of our local library for their summer reading program. So she'll get double the prizes for reading the books.
So what are you doing to "fun school" this summer?
