Create your own Summer Reading Program with these Free Printables!






Ahh, summer break!  It's only 9 days away at our house!  One of our favorite things to do during our summer is read.  There is nothing like spending hours and hours in a hammock, a favorite tree or by the pool reading a good book.  


Last year the kids had so much fun joining our local library's summer reading program.  So much so that they read the required amount of books way too quickly.  So, to add a little more incentive to their reading, I created our own summer reading program.  The goal is to keep track of the number of books and the amount of time that they spend reading.  Whenever they complete two hours of reading time, they get to pick a coupon.



The awards the kids will earn with our summer reading program are experiences - and there are many to be had.  Since our Valentine's Day coupons were such a hit with the kiddos, we repeated many of the same experiences for their reading awards.  You may dowlnoad the sheet and the coupons below.  Included are some blank templates so that you can add your own rewards.

By the way, I have also put together a list of 15 books for each grade {1-6}.  Of course,  kids vary greatly in their reading abilities.  Some kids in the first grade may have already read some of the 4th grade books, and vice versa.  Please feel free to recommend your favorite children's books in the comments.  We all love to discover new books!  : )

    1. Tina- basically if you want to edit the blank templates you have to think of them as a picture. Drag the download into your Word processing file as you would a picture, then just create a word box and type over the top of them. That way you can add your own words.
      Trust that makes sense. Let me know if you still have trouble. :)

  8. A wonderful idea for struggling readers. These bonus coupons motivate children to read, I think. I will use this idea in the summer for sure.
    I also want to share a cool printable for practicing handwriting. Writing letters to friends and family over summer break is a good practice.

  18. Guessing random number games is pretty famous in India. They can be a great time pass for many of us. Herein, either they are played with bets or simply for fun. But when we talk about the My Guess Satta game online or offline, it is related to the gambling game that involves money. Every day, thousands of the people or the bettors come online or come in contact with the bookie of their choice. I love your composing style. It's helpful and I really like it. Visit my site
