READING INCENTIVE!!! The Minnesota Timberwolves have a pretty cool incentive program for kids. Kids can earn a cinch sack backpack, poster, book mark and free children’s ticket to a game (with adult admission), if they read 500 minutes at school and at home between now and December 1st.  The kids were quite excited about it so you may want to ask them to show you their recording slip. The site below is the official site in case you are interested.
