I have books all over my house for both my kids and myself. We just love books and weekly trips to the library. A reading challenge just might be something to get everyone in your house interested in reading. Why not grab a book to read why your kids are reading too.
I get it though, not all kids love to read, sometimes it’s a struggle to get them to read, so I thought maybe coming up with a different way of finding books might help spark their interest.
Spring Reading Challenge for Elementary Kids

Let’s keep our kids reading this Spring even with the beautiful weather that is going to come with it. My first piece of advice would be to let them choose the books. I know you want to pick out of some great books for them, but you choosing just might lead to them not reading.
Every day, your child picks a reading square to complete, and when it’s completed, mark it off with a marker or sticker. When they get Bingo, they get a fun prize! They’re not anything big–just fun things that I know the kids will like. Candy, stickers, staying up late to watch a movie, etc. The dollar store is a great place to get little prizes.
They can then work on another row to get Bingo again. If they fill up the whole card, they get a special prize!
When you sign up for the weekly newsletter you also get access to the resource library I have created, just for you! In there you an find FREE printables including reading punch cards plus more that you may be interested in.
