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.
