School reading data consistently indicates that summer reading regression is a BIG problem.
This plan provides a structured FUN way to motivate kids to read over summer vacation. It is perfect for home schooling too.
This summer reading packet includes:
A colorful cover (prints well in black/white too)
Story elements re: reading regression (yikes)
A reading interest page
A summer reading log
A simple math equation to determine summer reading minutes
Beach ball coloring pages (each beach ball equals 1 reading hour)
Fabulous flip-flops to color and return to school (in the Fall) if the reading goal is met
A certificate of completion
Once the forms are collected you or the school can choose fun incentives. One incentive might be to give each child an actual pair of flip-flops (these are super cheap) and have a decorating party. Provide glitter, faux rhinestones and other items allowing students to proudly embellish their flip-flops of reading fame!
The pages in this packet are intentionally NOT numbered so you can assemble the packet in a way that works best for you.
