Thumbs up "Movie Night" reward for reading!

If your child enjoys reading books that have been made into movies, take advantage of it. Plan a "movie night" complete with popcorn, sodas and candy to go along with the movie version of the book series that he/she has finished reading. This gives them a goal to look forward to.

We did this with my son this past year when he decided to read Lemony Snicket's " A Series of Unfortunate Events" for his A.R. points for school. We watched the movie this summer when he had completed the series ("very disappointing" compared to the books ), ate popcorn and candy and drank sodas.

Right after that, we happen to see a lady out in a store who was wearing a shirt from the movie. Now he's on the lookout for one. lol!!
