Summer is the perfect time for reading. I remember sitting in my room or outside in my chair for hours reading a book during the summer months. My mother would have to remind me to eat lunch most days because I was engrossed in whatever book I was reading at the time.
I loved all the Dr. Seuss books when I was younger. As I got older, I loved The Babysitter’s Club books. I am pretty sure I owned most of the entire first series. I had read them all, so one summer I decided I would open up my own “lending library” from my bedroom window.
I had posted hours on my window and even put slips in the books to mark when people had checked them out. We pooled all the books from our house that summer and had an almost endless line of kids at my window every day checking out books. It was so fun!
Now that we homeschool, I love using summer as a way to remind them that reading can be challenging but fun. One way to do that is by utilizing Summer reading programs. Incentives are a great way to get kids excited to read. Even small incentives can do the trick for most kids! And if yours are like mine, once they start, they get hooked on the book, story and characters, and can’t stop!
Using reading programs or challenges is a great way to improve your child’s reading. Check out these FREE reading logs, bookmarks and more to use this summer.
