World Read Aloud Day announcement & educator sweepstakes

Did you know 66% of kids ages 6–11 say that reading aloud together is fun! To celebrate the importance of reading aloud in classrooms and at home, we are excited to announce February 1, 2018 as this year’s World Read Aloud Day, a day that calls attention to the importance of sharing stories and reading aloud.

This year we’re starting the celebration early with a special Read Aloud Educator Sweepstakes!

To enter for a chance to win, share your favorite read aloud experience on either Twitter of Instagram. Your favorite experience might include your favorite book to read aloud or great reactions you’ve received from your students.

You must tag Scholastic Education on Twitter @Scholastic or @ScholasticTeach and/or Instagram (@ScholasticInc) to submit your entry. Entrants may enter Sweepstakes only once.
