Students can trade their miles for online rewards, such as a joke or video of the day. Students also earn badges as online reminders of their accomplishments. Teachers can add their own rewards to the website, which students can "buy" with their miles. Rewards can be an individual reward, or teachers can create classroom raffles for students to enter.
As students read, the website interfaces with Amazon to create a "virtual library." It's rewarding for reluctant readers to keep track of what they've accomplished!
Reading Rewards is unique because it also offers a social aspect. Students have access to a "Reading Circle," where kids can discuss or recommend books, and see what their friends are reading. This social aspect is even more important for older students (upper elementary and middle school).
