Summer Smart Reading Challenge

Join the free Summer Smart Reading Challenge open to all students entering grades K-12. Designed in partnership between Mass Literacy and the technology startup Readocity, the program helps children become lifelong lovers of reading. The challenge runs from June 5 to August 31. Parents and educators can sign up now.

Using the Readocity app, students can set reading goals, track their progress, and discover award-winning book recommendations. Educators can upload their own summer reading lists and access their classroom’s reading data to help plan for the next school year.

Be named the official Summer Smart Reading Champion in the Boston Herald!
Both the school and the individual student that logs the most reading hours will be named Summer Smart Reading Champions and be featured in the Boston Herald. All students who meet their goals will be listed in the Boston Herald as Summer Reading Stars.

End: August 31, 2017
