Recently, a friend was asking about a summer reading tracker for her family. As a graphic designer and book lover, I was excited and jumped at the chance to create one. I imagine over time, I'll probably revise or add to it, but I thought I'd share. Our family will be using the booklets over the summer as well, and I can't wait to get started.
How it works:
Download the files: I created a booklet that can be printed with back to back pages on 8.5 x 11 paper. Or if you prefer something more simple, there is a 1 page tracker.
As you complete a book, color in a bulb from one of the top rows. If you'd like to adventure into other genres, there's a row you can color in and you read a new genre.
If you print the booklet, there's a few questions and drawing activities for your reading. A couple of the questions are repeated, but I put together a few critical thinking questions, to gauge my girls' understanding of their books. Most of the questions are pretty general and can be adapted to most ages, but I wrote them geared toward upper elementary to middle school.
Read, read, read till your brain is full and your heart is content, and then share your gorgeous colored booklet with me.
