Read to Succeed {Earn FREE Tickets to Six Flags}

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on January 20, 2011

Reading is a huge part of each school day, but the kiddos love to read on their own, too. Once the twins become a part of the story they are reading they can’t put it down. And, Julia? Well, she can devour a book in one afternoon, just like her mama! Josh isn’t quite reading chapter books yet, but he reads everything in sight and loves to sit and read short stories to his younger brothers.

Read to Succeed is a free educational program sponsored by Six Flags to inspire kids in grades K through 6 to engage in recreational reading. Children who complete six hours of recreational, nonschool-related reading are eligible to earn a free admission ticket to a participating Six Flags theme park. Even homeschooled kids are eligible! You can even earn a 20% discount in the Discovery Education Store through June 30, 2011.

To build your kiddos” enthusiasm for reading throughout the program, you can visit discoveryeducation.com for resources, family activities and more.

Happy Reading!

This is NOT a sponsored post. It is my goal here at From Dates to Diapers to bring all of my valuable information… I know my homeschooling friends will especially appreciate this one!

This is awesome. I remember doing the Book It! program with Pizza Hut when I was a kid. It was so much fun.

It’s great that you are letting people know about this. I registered (or thought I did) and can’t log in. Have you registered as a homeschool and tried to log in yet? I emailed them but no one has gotten back with me. I have to figure this out! My daughter is reading like crazy to get a ticket! Thanks!

Hi Angie! I posted about this last year, so I’m not sure if this program is even available this year. I’m sorry!
