Programs, Classes, Opportunities for Homeschoolers Fall 2015

 

Free Tickets to Six Flags, Great Adventure with Six Flags Read-to-Succeed 2015 – 2016

Homeschool kids can earn free tickets to Six Flags Great Adventure by completing 6 hours of reading by March 1st, 2016.  In the past, homeschool teachers also received free complimentary tickets by signing their students up for the program.  It’s free!  When my children were younger we participated in the program.  We’ve loved it!

How it works:  Homeschool Educators sign up their students in grades K – 6 for the program.  sixflags.com/read

FAQ: The website has a “Frequently Asked Questions” page you can access once you’ve signed up for an account.  It will answer any questions you may have. (see link above)

Keep a Log:  The website has log forms that Homeschoolers can download for their students.  Students must keep track of the leisure reading they do and write it down on their logs.  Books read for school assignments can not count towards their reading hours.  Homeschool teachers must monitor the student’s log keeping.

Log Complete:  If students complete 6 hours of reading by March 1st, the Homeschool teacher must submit their students’ reading time online and mail their completed logs in to the appropriate address.  (see link above)

Information received: After the program receives the students’ logged hours, a Great Adventure ticket will be emailed to the Home Educator for each child who has completed his/her reading.
