Reading challenges on Beanstack use gamification elements to reward and reinforce independent reading habits without restrictive levels or stressful quizzes. The fun reading approach uses positive reinforcement to transform readers' extrinsic motivation to read into intrinsic motivation, creating true reading engagement and sustained student motivation.


Fun virtual badges give real-time rewards and mark progress. Readers earn badges for hitting confidence-boosting reading goals, completing fun enrichment activities, submitting book reviews, or finishing a specific book.


Achievements award global reading actions, like reading on an author's birthday or adding your first friend, but with a twist: they aren't revealed in advance. This surprise motivation keeps readers coming back for a chance at unlocking a random reward.

Reading Streaks

Reading streaks grow as readers log consecutive days of reading, creating internal student motivation and consistent habits. Celebratory messages and reading reminders help make streaks even more habit-forming.

Friends & Leaderboards

Supercharge your community's reading with connection and healthy competition. Readers can compete with each other and discover new books from their friends' reading logs.


Easily attach your own rewards and certificates to badges to create extrinsic motivation in the classroom or at the library. It's easy to track earned and redeemed rewards, whether they're homework vouchers or books.

ISBN Scanning

Easily scan and log all your titles in the mobile app with just a few clicks. ISBN scanning is an easy and satisfying way to document reading and create a comprehensive reading log.

Community Goals

Galvanize readers around a community reading goal and watch the reading stack up. Track minutes, books, or days read as a whole community in addition to the individual reading goals within challenges.

Reading Timer

Ready, set, read! A built-in reading timer tracks reading in real-time on the web or the mobile app, so teachers, students, kids, and families can simply start a timer, pick up their books, and clock their time.
