Summer Reading Tips with a Free Printable Summer Reading Log
It’s that time again…SUMMER READING! Here’s a a couple of cute printable reading logs so your child and keep track of what they’re reading this summer.
My daughter has a goal of 100 books this summer, the same as last year! I thought I would share the reading logs she uses so you could print it out too. I know some people don’t like reading logs, but my 7 year old LOVES it.
She loves being able to see the progress she’s making and it often encourages her to “read one more” because she can get to the bottom faster.
Summer Reading Tips
Reading is so important during the summer. It helps so kids don’t get the summer slide. Update 2020- Especially after the shortened school year for most of the world, this is VERY important. Kids should be reading more than ever now!
- Make it fun by print out one of the below reading logs.
- Let your kids read what they want to read. Any reading is good reading.
- Make it challenge with a fun reward at the end (ice cream, camping in the backyard, a new Lego set).
- Kids just don’t have to read book- magazines are perfect too. Sports Illustrated are perfect for boys.
- Read books that are movies too. Read the book, then watch the movie and compare the two.
- Read books that are apart of a series. If they love a book, it’s a good way to keep going.
