To wrap up 10 Days of Summer Reading Activities, I’ve put together some fun reading printables for you.
Because I love ya.
Sometimes you just need a way to chart your child’s daily reading, keep track of the books he wants to read, or for gosh sake, find a bookmark.
So I got ya.
3 Free Printables
When I was a kid there was nothing I loved more than a getting a new bookmark. For me, bookmarks were like the magical key to the kingdom–a promise to come. I hoarded them. In fact (and maybe I should be embarrassed about this but I’m not), I still have 2 paper bookmarks that I received from some lovely teacher or librarian before I was 13.
Bookmarks keep your place. They’re like a best friend.
So here are some colorful bookmarks to print out for your kids. Just click on the pic to download.
If you’re trying to keep track of how long your kids read each day, this colorful printable lets them track in stars. 15 minutes? Half an hour? An hour? This is a fun way to track their progress. And an easy way for you to tell how much they’re reading at a glance.
Finally, here’s a freebie your kids can use to plan what they’re reading. Or what they want to check out at the library. Or buy from Amazon. And it’s cool, because books.
And a Lit Board Game
I’m crushing hard on this Bookworm Board Game. You can play using a particular book or all the books your kids have read. The boys tested it for me yesterday and they loved it. They had a lot of fun playing it using All Quiet On the Western Front (which we’re finishing up today–if you haven’t read it, you should. It’s hard to read sometimes, very sad sometimes, but also profound. I won’t ever forget this book, I’ll tell you that). Then they played it using All the Books and said that was just as fun.
Bookworm Board Game is kind of like reading comp with a die. Your kids will roll to see where they land, and when they hit one of the book pages they have to answer a prompt about a book. Stuff like Name a Character’s Best Trait or Name a Place a Character Went. If you want to make sure your kids remember the book without a boring Q & A worksheet, this is the thing. Directions and game pieces are included in the printable.
Thank you so much for joining me for this 10 Days of Summer Reading Activities Series. I’ve had a blast coming up with fun stuff for you to do to enhance your kids’ reading experience.
But don’t worry; it doesn’t end here. I will always be coming with that stuff. It’s what I do.
