A fun alternative to the traditional reading log, this Christmas-themed reading incentive will motivate your students to read. They will love seeing their ornaments or bulbs added to your classroom display!
At the beginning of December, send home the included parent letter of explanation along with 1 or 2 sheets of ornaments and/or bulbs. Explain to the students that for every book (or chapter) they read, they can fill-in an ornament/bulb to be added to the classroom display. You can either set an individual student goal, or a class goal. I have included parent letters for both.
I tell my students that books that they read count as well as books that are read to them, but you can set the parameters that you want for your students. You may also want parents to initial the back of the ornaments/bulbs to keep the students honest. Watch their excitement and motivation grow as the Christmas display gets bigger and bigger!
