Would you like to encourage your child to read more books? Here’s a free reading log with sticker bookmarks to get your child excited about reaching their reading goals!

reading log & bookmarks

This year we set a goal for my daughter to read 100 books. It was a big goal but totally achievable. She only has 4 more books to read and then she’ll hit that big 100 mark. She is SO excited about it!

Her reward is her very own library card and it makes me so happy to see her enthusiasm.

As a first grader, I didn’t want to put too much stress on her reading curriculum-wise. So the 100 book challenge has been a perfect fit for us. We just head to the library, check out as many books as we can and then I have her read one book every day. I make sure we check out a couple longer books and a couple easy Level 1s to boost her confidence.

One of my main homeschooling goals is to instill a love for reading. If my kids love to read, then there’s no stopping them from learning anything and everything they want to. Our success with this reading log is a glimmer of hope that we’re on that path.

You can set your own goals with your child – it can be 15 books, or 100 – whatever you feel is most appropriate for them. My 1st grader LOVES stickers, so the reading log and bookmark have spots for stickers your child can earn for each book.

There is also one bookmark without numbers on it if you don’t want to keep count.

Try getting a special folder or binder just for the reading log to make it more exciting. I send my daughter with a book, pencil and her reading log to a special place in the house for her reading time and she knows what to do from there.

    Hello

    Thank you for this nice collection of language arts. I always play a silly word games with my kids. I make up lists of rhyming words—the sillier the better! For example see, wee, tee, hee, plea, me! It doesn’t have to make sense. As a starter, I use my child’s name, such as “Jimmy, wimmy, bimmy, trimmy! Or a list of words that begin with the same letter, such as bat, ball, bring, box, boot. Ask, “What do you notice about these words?” Later, I can add in some words that begin with a different letter (for example bat, ball, bring, box, boot, chicken) and ask, “Which word starts with a different sound?”

    When my child has a friend over, they can both pretend to be the Bernstein Bears, for example, or Thing One and Thing Two from The Cat in the Hat. I encourage dramatic play based on the characters. I even have a teddy bear book party. I invite my child’s friends to bring a teddy bear and a book about a teddy bear to a neighborhood park. Children can play with their bears on the swings, sandbox, etc., and then they can share their teddy bear stories. This helps children understand that reading is fun, and that they can discuss books together. I ask, “How was this teddy bear book different from that one?” This theme party with books can also be extended to a hat party, a truck party, or a doll party.

    Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.
