Creative Way to Tracker Reading Progress
One of my boys’ new favorite things to do is track how much they’ve been reading.
And I’m totally encouraging it!
When Xman (5) expressed a desire to learn how to read, I knew it would only be a matter of time before his older brothers got involved. As I took out our copy of Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, big brothers reminisced about their experiences with this approach to learning how to read.
For each boy, I had maintained a chart to record each completed lesson. The boys loved the visual reminder plus fun way to track progress.
To give all my boys an opportunity to have reading tracker fun, I’ve created a variety of printables for them to choose and use. These coloring bookmarks are one of the ways I’m helping them have reading fun 🙂
Encourage Positive Habits with This Fun Reading Log for Kids
Would you like to help your kids enjoy their independent reading time more? I think it’s wonderful that you’re looking for ways to make the experience positive!
Not all kids naturally love reading. In fact, some kids find it a struggle or hassle. Others are distracted by screens or playtime.
I have boys that fall into each of these categories 😉 That’s why I look for fun ways to motivate and reward my boys to continue their reading practice and progress.
Cool Ideas & Tips for Using These Coloring Bookmarks as Reading Logs
Here are my tips for getting the most of using these coloring bookmarks for reading logs:
- Set clear expectations with your kids before using these coloring bookmarks. Determine how many minutes (or books) must be read before marking a slot.
- Have your child put their name on it (or you can jot it down for them!).
- Keep the bookmark in the same place (book, reading basket, bookshelf).
- Agree upon a reward for a complete bookmark (optional but fun!).
- Decide how your kids will fill-in their coloring bookmarks. Some super ideas are crayons, color pencils, and markers.
