Book It Reading Programs
Incentive – Free personal pan pizzas for students.
As a kid, I loved this program. It really helped me stay excited about reading. I am excited to share this same program with my own kids.
Here’s how the program works:
BOOK IT! runs every school year from October through March. The teacher sets a reading goal for each child in the class. A tracking chart and reproducibles are included to make it that much easier. And, we now offer an online Teacher Dashboard and BOOK IT! app! As soon as a child meets the monthly reading goal, the teacher gives him or her a Reading Award Certificate.
On your child’s first visit to Pizza Hut, the award winner will receive their Personal Pan Pizza, and also an official BOOK IT!® Passport to Reading and sticker to track their reading throughout the six months. On subsequent visits, he or she will get another Personal Pan Pizza and sticker to add to his or her passport. View the passport here!
(***Unfortunately, registration is closed for the 2015-2016 school year. Please check the link again in May for the 2016-2017 school year.***)
