During the month of March, the daycare invited the parents/families to participate in a reading program.  Families would log the number of minutes they read together.  At the end of each week, the minutes logged were turned in and tallied.  Turning in the logs meant that parents were eligible for drawings including gift certificates, free babysitting and other gifts.
The center-wide goal was to read for 12,000 minutes in order to earn a pizza party.
At the end of the month, we logged 15,000 minutes of reading!!
I owe the kids a pizza party now :)
Next Friday, 4/15, we'll be serving pizza for lunch as a reward for their hard work. 
I'm requesting help with making/purchasing desserts as a special treat.
If interested, other donations would be appreciated (such as pizza, fruit, chips, or juice).
This was a wonderful program that got parents and families excited about reading together. 
Thank you for your support in supporting our early readers.
