Encouraging Reading With $$ Reward

I am the mother of four children ages 4, 6, 8, and 10. I have found a great way to encourage them to read! I pay them a penny a page for the books they read.
The books need to be at their reading level (no baby books) and only pages with words count. They each keep track of their pages on a Works Spreadsheet with the date, name and number of pages with words. Payday is once a month on the 15th.

This is a great way to get them to read and they can earn as much money as they are motivated to earn. They do not get any other type of allowance for chores, etc. Their "job" is reading and they get paid to do it. The result of this system is three true readers and a great pre-reader and they love it!!
