Read-a-Palooza: What’s New
As parents, educators, librarians and community leaders, we applaud all you have done for your children and students to keep them learning through unprecedented closing of schools. As we enter the summer months there is no doubt we are all continuing to adjust to this new reality together. Now more than ever it is critically important to keep kids engaged in summer reading to ensure their academic success in the fall. Scholastic is committed to providing at-home learning over the summer months with Scholastic Summer Read-a-Palooza.
The free program unites communities in a nationwide campaign that celebrates reading for fun while improving access to books during the summer. For 2020, we are excited to share a brand new kids experience in Scholastic Home Base, a free digital destination which offers full books, live events, and games in a safe community for readers! Kids will be encouraged to track their reading streaks™ to earn rewards and unlock book donations, with the goal of donating 100,000 books by July! To learn more, download the informational sheet below.
What is Scholastic Home Base?
Scholastic Home Base is a fun, safe, and completely free online destination where kids can create their own avatar, interact with their favorite Scholastic characters, play games, and read books. Home Base is moderated 24/7.
Starting May 4, kids will be able to visit a special Scholastic Summer Read-a-Palooza zone where they can start and keep their reading streaks, earn special rewards, and more. At any point during the summer, kids can download and print a report of their reading progress to share with their parent, educator, librarian, or group leader.
Home Base is available on the web at scholastic.com/homebase, and as an app for both Apple and Android devices.
