Celebrate Reading! Enter to win a bookstore gift card!

Do you keep track of the reading your children do during the school year?

Usually I just keep a list of books in their portfolios, but a couple of years ago, I decided to make it a fun project for the kids.  I cut strips of scrapbook paper of various colors, and we turned them into book chains.  Each color represented a different type of book, such as red for read alouds, yellow for science, green for biography, blue for history, etc.  This was a great visual for the kids to see just how much reading they had accomplished.

  1. Our homeschool group did that years ago and it was called “Read a mile” and we connected them all together at a park in the spring. Now, i just keep a reading list on a sheet of paper.

  2. I haven’t been keeping track because we go through so many and multiple times with some of them. I like the reading chain idea. My crafty kids would have fun keeping track that way. Thanks for the tip!
