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!
