Keep track of summer reading with these printables

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.

We’ll attempt this with my rising first-grader as well, but will probably aim for 20 books instead.

    My kids and I love to read and this summer I included a reading challenge and a map to track where their reading takes them in their summer bullet journals so they can do the Travel the world in books reading challenge with me.
