Increase Family Engagement with Read and Rise

Read and Rise is a national Scholastic literacy initiative that reinforces the practical things all families can do to ensure their children become strong readers and learners. Together, schools and families practice literacy skills to encourage a love of reading and promote academic achievement.

Scholastic Read and Rise™ program is designed to support schools with their family engagement goals by:

  • Helping families foster the skills, attitudes, and behaviors that support children’s literacy development
  • Engaging families through fun, literacy-based events
  • Preparing children for reading and learning development
  • The Book Fair and the Family Engagement Program are the two components of the Read and Rise program and work best when offered together during a Family literacy event. If you choose, you may run these components independently.

Create a Family Centered Literacy Event Beginning with a Book Fair

The Scholastic Read and Rise™ Book Fair - These reading events run for one week and include time for student and faculty previews, Family Engagement Program, and the Book Fair shopping experience.

Easy — Each Book Fair is delivered in rolling cases that move easily and can lock each day. The Book Fair is easy to set up and display in any school location, and can be hosted by 3–5 family or staff volunteers.

Affordable — The Book Fair contains hundreds of high-interest books as well as quality ethnic and multicultural titles with many titles priced below $5 to ensure that all students may participate. All purchases benefit the host school!*

Age Appropriate — Scholastic offers three Book Fairs designed to accommodate most school types:

  • Elementary School Book Fair (grades PreK–5)

I am a kindergarten teacher and I know of some great sites.
The first is They have online storybooks that are interactive. There are also printable work book pages for more practice. This site is free, but they also have books and workbooks that you can buy at very reasonable prices.
The second is This site has an amazing amount of reading material. You do need a subscription for most of the materials but some are free. They have leveled readers, phonics readers, read alouds that cover each sound with a new story, and alphabet books that just show pictures that all start with the same sound

  • Avatar Lakely Some are upset. Do you think it is fair to use the Gospel Enigma book for reference?
    May 09, 2008 by Lakely | Posted in Religion & Spirituality

    It's here: I'm asking, since it appears that my reference to this book seems is upsetting a number of people.

    It's the story of a couple of kids who interpret the Bible on their own. …need to know what you think. Is it fair to use the Gospel Enigma book for reference? And if not, I would like to know what you would suggest so that poeple could get the big picture on this non-theological point of view.

    • Actually Hosea is an expansion on Samual's statement to King Saul that God desires obedience not sacrifice.

      I don;t think it's fair to you to rely on the wisdom of a couple kids and set aside better thinkers
