Why summer reading matters for kids

Summer reading matters for kids more than they might realize!

Not only is it a chance to dive into exciting stories and explore new worlds, but it also helps them sharpen their reading skills and expand their vocabulary.

Plus, it keeps their minds active and prevents the dreaded summer slide.

So have them grab a book, find a cozy spot under the shade, and let the summer reading adventures begin!

How to make summer reading fun

If you’re wondering how to encourage reading habits and make summer reading more enjoyable, we’ve got you covered!

  1. One way is to create a reading routine by setting aside a specific time each day dedicated to reading.
  2. Make it a family affair by having designated “reading time” where everyone gathers together with their favorite books.
  3. Another effective method is to lead by example and let your kids see you immersed in a book. Providing a variety of reading materials such as comics, magazines, and age-appropriate books will also pique their interest.
  4. Lastly, don’t forget to praise their efforts and celebrate milestones to reinforce the joy of reading. By implementing these strategies, you’ll nurture a lifelong love for reading in no time!

How to use the summer reading logs

This summer log reading worksheet is free to print but is for personal and classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the post and add your email address to get the pdf file.

There are three different worksheets to download, one in color, and two are black and white (to save on your ink!)

If the kids choose either of the black and white reading logs encourage them to color them in before they start.

We keep our reading log on the refrigerator, but you could leave it where the children normally read.

We started using this a couple of weeks ago and we are already on the second page! But my son is a bookworm!

Summer reading worksheets

The printable summer reading log is super simple to complete and is perfect for kids of all ages. Even if they are not writing yet, you could fill it out for them.

When the kids start reading they need to add the date, the title of the book, the number of pages read, and color in how many stars they give those pages.

This can be used with our free summer book bingo reading challenge. So when the kids have read a certain number of books they get a small prize. I normally just give another book!

This is the second page of ours so far, as you can see even printing in black and white and coloring in, it can look super colorful.
