If your kids are like my kids, they love tracking things. Kids, like adults, need encouragement when reaching for goals. Whether you have a child who loves reading/being read to or are in the midst of encouraging your child to read more– setting goals is motivating for everyone.
A reading log is a great way to help children develop a life-long habit and is one of the best summer activities to sharpen developing brains. If you are setting goals, the recommended minimum for reading is 20 minutes a day.
We also have a fun writing journal printable to keep kids writing throughout the summer. The journal printable can also be used as a reading activity. A child can illustrate a scene from the book and record a sentence or two about their thoughts on what they have read.
The printable reading log has 30 spots, so it should easily get you through a month of reading.
Since we did our crazy room shift, nothing is finished and all of our books are still waiting for a home. I’m anxious to check a million in one things off of our to-do list–organizing books being one of them–but alas, time and money haven’t allowed. You can take a peek at the boys room, which isn’t near finished. You can check out their former book organization here and here. Easy access to books definitely encourages reading!
