Help to keep your students motivated during independent reading time with these engaging Reading Passports!! Each passport has twelve unique pages. Each page has a six-square chart for earning stickers. Read a book, get a sticker! When the page has six stickers, you can stamp it with one of the unique stamps.

In addition to the Reading Passports, you will receive tons of tips and tools to help you keep your students accountable during free or independent reading time.

As a classroom teacher, I believed that students should have time every day to read independently. As an elementary librarian, I am CERTAIN that they should have that time. BUT … Does it drive you crazy when your kids pick up a different book every day for independent reading?? Have you ever seen a kid just open their book to a random page and just start reading?? Isn't it enough to drive you crazy??

Some may call it DEAR, some SSR. But regardless of its name, this product outlines a step by step approach to organizing your kids’ independent reading! This package is chock full of tremendous tools to support your program. Here's all that you get …

1) Introduction and explanation with step by step directions and frequently asked questions
2) Parent letter in an editable WORD file
3) Book notes for parents to complete when their child finishes a book at home
4) Bookmarks for students to track their reading
5) Reading logs for students to track the books that they have read
6) a TEN page uniquely styled Reading Passport (both in B&W and color)
7) Twelve sheets (one for each page in the Reading Passport) of passport stamps
8) Prize Posters (one complete and one blank)
9) Coupons for Incentives: Free Library Period, No Homework, Ice Cream, Pick 5 Books, and Double Stickers
10) Independent Reading Folder Cover
11) Book Review Sheets for students to rate their books

All elements have a travel theme: Reading Takes You Places.

This program can be used in a single classroom or school wide. As a librarian, I run this as a school wide reading program, and my teachers have very POSITIVE reactions to it. They find it easy to manage in the classroom and appreciate how it has made their students more accountable in their daily reading.
