This is an easy-to-assemble 30 Book Challenge Passport!
How I use this 30 Book Challenge Passport:
Each student is given a passport at the beginning of the school year that must be completed by the
end of the year. The purpose is for kids to read a lot of books in many different genres, so they are
exposed to different styles of literature while improving their reading skills.
After a book is read, a student will fill out their Passport for me to review.
I have students take an Accelerated Reader quiz after finishing the book, too. If they pass it, they get
credit for the book. and have their Passport “stamped” for that page. I stamp the circle area with any
type of “teacher” stamp. I also have a chart on the wall that students put a star on after they get
their stamp. It’s a good visual reminder for the kids to see how they are progressing throughout the
year. If no AR test is available, I just initial the spot on the Passport and do a small reading conference.
Students may skip around in the Passport based on what they are interested in reading at the time,
but all pages should be done by the end of the year.
I also assign a “Genre Themed” Book Report project each month, too, so students can use a book
from their Passport to do their project. I have posted the Book Reports free on my Teachers Pay
Teachers page. You could just assign specific pages in the Passport each marking period, too, to
have kids reading books in a specific genre you are studying.
How to assemble: Make photocopies (front to back), then cut across the center and stack to make
a mini book. Fold the book in half. Staple the center in two or three places.
