Reading is something we are always doing and changing. We totally loved the transportation reading charts. We had so much fun. The charts keep my girls reading and working toward goals.
It is amazing how fun it is to fill up a chart and get a fun reward. These charts are similar to the summer reading program that our library does and it helps my girls read and have fun while doing it. It helps them keep on goal and we do more reading with the charts than when I just ask them to do their reading time for school.
Since we are in February I thought some Valentines Themed Reading Charts might be fun to have.
I love the way kids love to fill out charts. During the summer my girls rush to fill out the summer reading charts, and I love seeing how they smile when they read. That is what reading should be smiling. And when they hand me a chart that is done they love it!
Plus my older girls love to have reading charts for them! I have found that this simple chart they can see helps them do more reading than what the school asks of them.
There are many ways to keep track of your reading. You can do it weekly, monthly, or however, you want. I find that having this monthly theme going each month makes it tons of fun for at least my girls. They want to read more and find it fun. We are doing minutes and books for this month. They can keep track of their charts how they want, but we have the ones to keep track of on the back of their folders. One is a 100 chart, and the other is a 30 minutes chart.
My youngest rushes to read 10 books right away so that she has a row filled in as quick as she can.
One cool part of this set is the daily spinning activity. There is a spinner that you can use the fill with stickers or stameps. We used the Melissa & Doug Wooden Stamp Set: Friendship and Melissa & Doug Butterfly and Heart Wooden Stamp Set with our spinner. I put one or two stamps in each part of the wheel.
Every day they can spin the wheel and add the stamp they spun to their decorating page. I put these pages in the center of the folders. We use a pencil or pen sometimes to make the spinners. After they spin they get to stamp the decorating page.
On the decorating page, they put the stamp wherever they want. As time goes by it will fill up. I have used big stamps, small stamp, and stickers with these pages. It is all fun. Plus they can color the page as the month goes on.
For every ten books that my youngest reads, she gets to put a sticker on the decorating page. For every three hours, my older girls read they get to put a stick on the page, plus earn a ticket to turn in for other things. We have ticks for computer time, watching tv time or saving up the tickets and get a reward for finishing the chart. One of my girls wants a 3D drawing pen for hers. Also for my older two for every 12 hours they read, I’ll buy them a book they want and for every 30 books my youngest read I’ll get her a book.
