Get Your Kids Excited About Reading This February
Now that my youngest is learning how to read, I’m thinking of fun ways to motivate all five of my boys to read. Since my boys are competitive, I thought a chart to document how much they are reading would be a great incentive.
Also, February tends to be a rough month. We live in western Pennsylvania and the weather typically keeps us indoors. Freezing temperatures and ice make it difficult to play outdoors. A fun reading challenge will jazz up the month 😉
We have our Reading Punchcards and Coloring Bookmarks. These reading tracker incentives are great for year-round. But, I wanted something special for February. It is often a homeschool slump month so…
So, I decided a February Fun Reading Challenge was in order. We’re working on our list of books with fun February themes (see below) and getting ready for some reading fun.
Tips & Tricks for Using This February Fun Reading Challenge Chart
Before we get to the books with fun February themes, here are a few ways to boost the experience with your kids:
- Work with each child to determine individual goals. Customize the chart to fit your child’s needs. You may want to change minutes read or color in a heart for each book read.
- Make a plan with your child to help them reach their reading goals. Use this opportunity to teach and practice time management skills and responsibility.
- Instead of coloring the hearts, give your child heart-shaped stickers or stamps to record reading progress.
- Pick out books ahead of time and organize them into a pile or basket. This step helps if your child gets overwhelmed with selecting which book to read.
- Take a trip to the library and stock up on books with February themes or personal interest.
- Put your child’s February Fun Reading Challenge chart in their binder or display on the refrigerator (or other frequently visited areas in your home).
