There are some awesome Reading Resources out there to help you log reading and to encourage your kids to read more!
Reading ResourcesI have two struggling readers that need some encouragement in reading each day. I have been searching for all kinds of fun resources for them to encourage more reading in our home.
Here are some of my finds:

FREE Reading Logs:
Reading Logs are important because you can track how much is being read and set obtainable goals. I like to pick a reward and write it in big, bold colors at the top of the log so they are reminded of what they will receive if they complete it. You may not need to do this with kids that love to read, but I have found that it is a good incentive for struggling readers that need more practice.

We love bookmarks and can’t get enough of them, (they get lost quite often, so I make sure to have a lot on hand.) I also make sure I laminate the ones we love so they don’t get damaged.
