Do A Dot Reading Log {Free Printable}

When I was putting Big Brother's notebook together to begin his first grade year, I included a reading log as a way to track his reading and as an incentive to encourage him to read more.  After a "book" or section of a book had been read, he was able to add a sticker to the chart. Once the chart was complete, I gave him a few choices for his "prize."  He chose a new pack of cars.

The reading log worked remarkably well; his required reading for the day got done and he was rewarded for a job well done.  And sometimes he read an extra book and/or chapter....  After we completed the log, I never printed off another one and honestly, without that external motivation, required reading was a struggle some days.  Thus, this new Do a Dot reading log was created!  Once my son reads 25 books, set amount of pages, and/or stories, I told him I'd surprise him with one of his favorite treats.  What you count as a book read is up to you; some days I assign several pages and he is rewarded a sticker, other days he must read the entire book-- it just depends on the book.
If you'd like to use our do a dot reading log, too, just click the link below to access it! It can be used with dot stickers, Do A Dot markers, or laminated for continued use.  It is really up to you how you decide to use it, but I hope it makes required reading a little more enjoyable for you and your child!

Do you add in some little carrot {i.e reward} to get reading time done?  If so, what?

I'd love for you to follow along so you never miss out on one of our fun activities we share at School Time Snippets!
