How to Use This Kid’s Reading Log
Now that you have your free printable, how do you use it? Start by printing a copy of this for each child. You can use regular copy paper or even white card stock for something more sturdy. Then just cut out the bookmark on the left hand side. Depending on the age of the child, you can let them do this themselves. They can even punch a hole in the top and add yarn or string.
NOTE: This is a great classroom activity as well. Feel free to use my free printable in educational settings!
Then have them add their name and the month across the top of the page. They can then add their daily reading to the log to track their progress. You can even set goals for reading each day or each week. This is a great way to keep them reading all summer long!
Giving your child the love of books is one of the best gifts that you can give. Encourage them to read as often and as much as possible. They will learn so much and you may just enjoy it as well! You could even print one of these logs for yourself and enjoy some reading time on your own. You are never too old to read a good book!
