I’m excited to begin a new year for so many reasons. There are resolutions to keep, decisions to make, and new endeavors to embark upon.
One of my favorite challenges to set is a Reading Challenge. Have you set your 2017 Goodreads Challenge yet? I find it helpful to have a place to keep track of all of the books I read and audiobooks I listen to. If I don’t keep track, I’ll just forget. Last year, I surpassed my goal of reading 40 books and read 51. If you have started a 2017 Reading Challenge, add me. I’d love to see what you’re reading.
As much as I love setting reading challenges, I also love to have my students set reading challenges. It is so important for them to see success and feel good about what they’ve read.
So…I’ve created a 2017 Reading Challenge. I can’t wait to introduce it to my kids when we get back. I haven’t officially decided if there will be any sort of incentive, but if you have any good ideas, shout them out!
My kids will be getting a checklist with several different challenges and a reading log.
The topics include categories such as ‘a book that was written the year you were born,’ ‘a graphic novel,’ and ‘a book based on a TV show.’
I’m hoping that my students really enjoy tracking their reading and working toward a goal.
If you want to grab this for your kids, I’ve uploaded it for FREE in my store. Grab it here.
