Hey y’all, Tiffany here.
Did anyone else ever get grounded from reading as a child?
No? Just me?
Well, true story – I loved reading so much that when I was a kid, the only way to give me a consequence I cared about was to ground me from reading and force me to go play outside or at a friend’s house.
And oftentimes, I got grounded from reading becauase I was trying to read late at night in the bathroom. I never could figure out how my parents knew I was in there. (Duh, the light was on and could be seen from the hallway).
Phillip and I are both big readers, and we want our children to love reading as well. As they transition from being read to to reading on their own, we want to help motivate that.
Why do you need a free printable monthly reading chart for your kids?
Our kids go through several different reading programs throughout the year. Sometimes, especially during the summer, they are in a few at the same time!! And with modern technology, many are tracked online now (like Pizza Hut’s Book-It program).
Even when there aren’t any ongoing programs, since we homeschool, we need to come up with our own ways to encourage reading.
To help keep track a little better, and to help the kids be more involved and excited for reading, we created these free printable reading charts for kids so they can color in each day that they read.
The great thing about these free printable monthly reading charts is you can reward your kids however you want! We like to give these non-candy items that we typically fill Easter eggs with or hand out at Halloween.
Many reading programs, like from the library or Half-Priced books, will give a free book as a reward for finishing the program. We like to be able to reward along the journey, so we give small rewards for each line that gets colored in, and then one big reward at the end of each month.
You can download all of them as a PDF, or you can get them individually by clicking on the images below.
And if you like free printables, check out this free Weird Holidays printable for every single day of the year! Your kids can also practice their number recognition with these 42 free printable color-by-number worksheets.
