Grab this free printable LEGO-themed reading chart to use in August! A fun way to keep kids engaged in reading as summer winds down and the school year starts!
The last month of summer is fast approaching! I know many kiddos and teachers are headed back to school at the beginning of August. Since we go back after Labor Day, we still have the month of August to enjoy a bit more fun in the sun! This will be our second summer starting a LEGO-themed reading chart on August first. It is back by popular demand – from my kids! This year I thought I’d share the free printable I created for it.
My kids had so much fun doing this reading chart last year and I find its also really helpful for me. As we near back-to-school, its easy to get caught up in preparing, shopping and easing out of summer-mode. This chart helps keep us all on track with our reading time – especially for my youngest who is just learning to read.
It’s SO simple to set up. Download the free printable located at the end of this post, fill in the dates and decide on a goal and reward. The goal can be anything that fits for your child. Here are a few of the goals we have done before if you need help brainstorming:
- Read __ number of books a day
- Read __ number of books a day with ______
- Read __ number of minutes a day
- Finish the books from the _______series
- Read a chapter from ______ book each day
- Listen to a chapter from the ______ audio book each day
SO many options! For the reward, choose anything that would be exciting for your child, but still within your means. It doesn’t have to be lavish, just something fun! Since this chart is LEGO-themed, we stick with LEGO-themed rewards like a mini LEGO set or a certain LEGO mini-figure. There are so many sizes of LEGO sets that you can choose whatever works best for you. OR if you have a family trip already planned to a place like LEGO Land, use this reading chart as a fun reading challenge AND countdown!
The chart is blank so it will work for any month of the year, just fill in the dates. Have your kiddo place stickers on each complete day or cross them out! When they reach the end – it’s reward time!
I hope you enjoy this fun LEGO-themed reading chart! You can grab the free printable below. While you’re here, check out our other fun LEGO-themed projects.
If you or your kids are headed back to school in the next couple weeks, Happy New School Year!!
