I think that most parents agree that having their children read during the summer is important. One thing I love about summer reading is there are no AR goals….no forms to complete for school….my child can just read for pleasure!! I decided to help my 10-year-old along with her summer reading by giving her some adorable summer reading bookmarks!
I wanted a simple way for my daughter to track how often she is reading. I wanted something she could do herself to give her a little more independence and buy in for trying to read at least a little bit every day this summer. These summer reading bookmarks do the trick!
How Summer Reading Bookmarks Can Keep Your Child Reading
Summer Reading Bookmarks Will Give Your Child Responsibility for Their Reading
Putting your child in charge of punching their bookmark every day that they read will really help them take responsibility for their own reading. Kids love to do things by themselves….just ask my 3-year-old, LOL! Giving your child the responsibility to punch their bookmark each day will be fun for them!
Summer Reading Bookmarks are Easy to Find
Your child will keep their bookmark….right in their book! They won't have to go looking for it everywhere….just read and then punch it!
Summer Reading Bookmarks Build on Each Other
After your child finishes their reading for June….they will be able to get their July bookmark. When July reading is done it will be time for the August bookmark. It is a little something to look forward to this summer…completing a bookmark and getting a brand new fresh bookmark for the next month!
Summer Reading Bookmarks are FREE PRINTABLES here at Life is Sweeter by Design
I wanted to share my adorable Summer Reading Bookmarks with my readers. You can download your copy of the bookmarks and get your kids busy reading this summer! I printed my bookmarks off on white cardstock so that they would be more durable. There are 2 different sets of Summer Reading Bookmarks…one geared for girls and one geared for boys! You can download one or both depending on what you need! I would love to have you share this post with your friends so they can get their free bookmarks too!
