Last summer, I challenged my rising second-grader to read 50 books. If he did it, I’d take him to Target and he could buy something special as a reward. I knew it might be tough, but he LOVES reading and I figured it would be a good way to distract him from the tablet or TV during quiet time.
I had him keep a little reading log, where he wrote the title and author and something about the book that he liked.
This summer, we’ll do the same thing, only I have these nifty little printables that I’ve put into a 3-ring binder for him. This way we can easily track his summer reading progress and it challenges him to think more about what he’s read.
