Product Description

Do you want to inspire excitement and enthusiasm for reading?

Do you want to engage your students and challenge them to grow as readers?

Do you want to celebrate students’ success as they experience new genres?

Look no further!

Inspired by the 40 Book Challenge from Donalyn Miller’s book The Book Whisperer, this product will track student progress through their 40 book genre goal. In the 40 book challenge students have a goal to read 40 books across different genres. As students complete a book, they mark their progress by marking the correct genre on their reading badge. With the genres already labeled on this badge, students and teachers can easily keep track of which genre goals students are completing and which genre goals students are still working towards. By displaying these badges in your classroom or in reading notebooks, you not only track success, but also celebrate reading!

***Donalyn Miller offers many amazing free resources for teachers that she uses so be sure to check hers out! You do not need to purchase anything to excite readers with the 40 book challenge, but I wanted to give an option of something I made that works in my class!

This product contains:

-Tips on how to get started and how to incorporate this reading challenge in your


-12 different color reading badges ready to print and use in 2 formats

-an editable version that allows you to type student names on each badge

-a non-editable version for writing student names on yourself

Reading badges come ready to print and use in your classroom! Printing on card stock paper and/or laminating is recommended for durable badges that last the school year.
