Disclosure: I’m partnering with Pizza Hut to bring you this information, but all opinions are my own.
It’s time to register for Pizza Hut’s BOOK IT!® Program! Celebrating its 35th year, this free reading incentive program is a yummy opportunity for elementary teachers and homeschoolers (for students ages 5-12) to reward children for accomplishing any reading goals.
Pizza Hut’s BOOK IT! Program
Here’s how it works…
Teachers, librarians, or homeschoolers can register online. Digital enrollment is always open with enrollment transitioning to the following school year March 1.
To enroll visit: https://bit.ly/2MHnXfd.
After you register online, you’ll be sent an invitation and instructions.
Once you’re enrolled, you can set reading goals for your students/children. Even if a child can’t read, their goal can be as simple as having a parent read one book per night to them. Other goals could be to read one book on their own or read 20 minutes per night. Anything like that! You know your students and children best so that’s why this is so flexible. You, with collaboration from your students if you want, get to choose the goal to reach.
At the end of each week, educators can reward students who’ve accomplished their BOOK IT!® goal with a Reading Award Certificate redeemable for a FREE 1-topping Personal Pan® Pizza, a prize and a sticker. YUM! kids love this reward, let me tell you.
The first time you redeem your reward, Pizza Hut will give you an adorable 2019-2020 Reading Journal with an Origami Yoda cover. Inside are monthly pages to track the minutes read each month as well as a few just-for-fun literacy activities like Bingo.
The BOOK IT!® program began in 1984 when then-president of Pizza Hut Arthur Gunther thought of his son who had trouble reading growing up. Gunther met with educators in the Kansas area with the goal of coming up with a program that would encourage kids to read and help them develop reading skills. The idea was so good, the founder decided to share it with everyone. Now BOOK IT!® is reaching more than 14 million students and 37,000 schools a year.
