Hey there! Reading Challenge Bookmarks have been added to the Freebie Library.
Contents of the Reading Challenge Bookmarks Freebie
The Reading Challenge Bookmarks are a great way to encourage your kids to read. Choose from the following nine animal options: beaver, elephant, koala, duck, fox, mouse, raccoon, pig, or zebra. Or choose them all!
Each animal has its own page, which consists of four bookmarks. Below is a picture of the raccoon Reading Challenge Bookmark page.
Each Reading Challenge Bookmark has ten books to color or punch a hole through when a reading challenge is completed. Additional space is provided at the bottom to record a name and goal.
Directions for the Reading Challenge Bookmarks Freebie
- Go to the Freebie Library.
- Scroll to the Reading Freebies section and click on the Freebie: Reading Challenge Bookmarks picture. (It looks the same as the picture at the top of this post.)
- Print the bookmarks on card stock and cut them out. Then fill in the space for the name and reading goal. Laminate the bookmarks for more durability if desired.
- Choose your reading challenge. Each book on the bookmark could represent a book that has been read or a set amount of reading time (such as fifteen minutes or thirty minutes).
- Punch a hole through each book on the bookmark as the challenge is completed. For example, if you choose to have each book represent fifteen minutes of reading time and your kid reads for thirty minutes, punch a hole through two books on the bookmark.
- A prize could be offered when all ten books have a hole punched through them.
- Alternative option: If you don’t laminate the bookmarks, your kids could color the books as they complete the challenge.
