Summer Is the Time for... Reading

If your house is anything like mine in the summer, than you have plenty of reading that is happening. So many places offer summer reading programs for kids. My Frugal Adventures has a nice list of places offering reading programs this summer. But there are probably also lots of local places that have summer reading programs. I know our library has one as well as some local restaurants.

Also if you are like me, you have trouble keeping up with the different reading logs that get misplaced all over the house. So, my solution has been to create my own central Reading Log that lives posted on my refigerator. Then we can record the information all in one place. Then it can be transferred to the different lists at the necessary times. Yes, it means having to write the information down an additional time, but the time it saves me in digging for the forms everyday is worth it to me.

I am making the Reading Log available to anyone else it might help for free. Reading helps prevent that summer slide, and the reading programs offer nice incentives for kids to keep reading over the summer.


  1. Thank you! I'll use this with my students. :)

  2. I absolutely agree with you. Summer is for reading. We still have three more weeks of school, so I have time to promote summer reading with my students.

  3. I love it... I am considering homeschooling and supplimenting what they get at school for now... I like this log better than most as it is simple and asks them to discuss what they read!!!

    I am implimenting it for the summer for the daycare kids too! Even little ones(maybe not babies, but they still point and grab at parts, so you can kinda guess) can tell you if they liked a book or not.
