Reading logs for kids

Download the Summer Reading Log printable using the link below.Print out the pages you want to use. I recommend printing bookmarks on cardstock and the rest of the pages on regular paper. Slip the front cover into the transparent pocket of a view binder. Punch holes in the left-hand side of pages 3-6 and place in a ring binder. Alternatively use a clipboard to hold everything together, or place the sheets in a file folder. It’s really up to you.
For the reading challenge you need to decide how long you want your children to read before they can cross off a square. Fill out the numbers of minutes at the top of the sheet. I would recommend between 5 and 15 depending on the child’s age.
Hint: You may want to choose some kind of reward if your kids finish a row. It could be anything from staying up late to a special summer treat. Finishing the whole sheet might warrant a special treat, such as a trip to a favorite theme park or to the local store to choose new book. Choose something that will appeal to your kids.

A word about the reading logs

You will notice that we are recording minutes read rather than numbers of books. At the library we find that logging the number of books tends to encourage children to read below their reading level, so they can get through more books. Logging the number of minutes read allows kids to read books that are better suited to their reading level. It doesn’t matter if you spend 20 minutes reading a few chapters or go through 4 picture books. It is the number of minutes that count. This is particularly important if you have children all at different reading levels.
