Happy Summer! In honor of the season, here is my own little summer reading chart in honor of those great library programs that I enjoyed years ago. It's not intended to encourage reading lots of books. Instead, it marks the moments that we, as adults, can grab for reading. The 5-minute summer vacations.
Want to play? Feel free to download and print the files - available in two color schemes:
and let me know if you're playing. There will be a reward at the end of the summer! Or, knowing me, early fall.
The chart has a few squares already filled in that can be covered with pictures: "read with a frozen treat;" "wander through a bookstore." Because you're a grown-up, you're allowed to change those goals to anything that will match the picture.
Then there are other stickers that can go anywhere, like "read before the dishes are done." Some of the stickers are blank, so that they can be filled in with other goals/moments.
Only sixteen squares - sixteen moments of reading and enjoying books this summer.
It's my first time posting files, so if you can't download, let me know. And feel free to steal the badge over in the right column, if you know how. I can post the html code for the badge if anyone is interested.
