Summer Reading Kit Printables

Image by Creative Mamma

Joy from Creative Mamma has another cute free printable out. This time it's a reading kit to get your kids excited about reading this summer. I know sometimes my kids need an extra push when there are so many other distractions, riding bikes, swimming, etc.

What do you do to motivate your child(ren) to read in the summer?

So cute! I'll need to print some for my nephew for when he's old enough.

When I was growing up my library used to have book lists for each grade level & my parents would challenge me to finish them over the summer. For some reason, that was enough to make me do it!

Since I could write through maybe middle school, I kept a list of all the books I read & my goal was always to reach a higher number.

When I was younger, our library had elaborate summer reading programs. For example, if you finished a book and wrote a report, you would get a sticker to make a country & your summer goal was to finish the world. It was a different theme each year.

Cool, these are cute enough for a grownup lady to use, too!

when they were little, the community had a reading program and you won free personal sized pizza for every 10 books you read. The thing I did was always let them take their time sorting through books to find something they like. Now that they are older, my son reads a book a week and my daughter reads a book every 2 weeks....she is artistic and likes to draw and I don't want to discourage that either!

I wish we had these cuties when they were little...I would have loved to use them!!!!

These are great! This will work perfectly with the SF Libraries summer reading program where kids can get prizes based on the amount of reading minutes logged on their website www.SFPL.org.
