Reading to and with your children is one of the absolute best ways to instill in them a love of reading long term. Even after they have learned to read themselves, studies have shown that the benefits of continuing to read with your children are vast.
As of right now, the kindergartner is currently in the middle of the learning to read process and while he is finding more and more things each day that he wants to try to read on his own, we still try to make sure that we have plenty of time for reading together.
One of the easiest ways to keep track? Our printable reading logs!
On top of sharing these fun reading logs, we’re kicking off a brand new series today and I could not be more excited!
If you been following the site for anything length of time, you know just how much I love fall and how much I love printables. I can’t get enough of either of them!
This year though, we’re combining the two and celebrating in a big way!
With 30 days of fall printables during the month of November!
And today, we’re kicking that off with our November reading log!
Now, these reading logs are so easy to use and if your kids are anything like mine, they’re going to love them!
For each book that your child reads or that you read together, simply have your child grab some crayons and color in one of the pictures on their log. This month, the theme is turkeys!
Included in the November reading log download are three different logs.
The first reading log contains 5 turkeys (or five books), the second contains 10, and the third contains 20. Pick the level that you feel works best for your child.
Grab a full year’s worth of themed monthly reading logs in our shop!
In our house, we stick a new reading log on the fridge at the beginning of each month and keep track as the days go by. The kids love marking off a new picture after we’ve read a new book and I love that they’re getting so much reading time in and that they’re trying out so many different types of stories.
If you’re using these in the classroom with young children, these make a great take-home activity that they can work on with their parents!
