School is in full swing around here! Things have been good, even homework time has been amazing thanks to our new Homework Station! The only item I’m getting any resistance from with my 2nd grader is getting his reading minutes in! I wanted to help give him some incentive and motivation to do his reading, so I designed these cute Printable Bookmarks with punches on them!
The bookmarks have 20 spots to punch (or sticker, or mark off, etc)! Each bookmark has spots for him to read 5 of 7 days a week for 4 weeks! So, a punch card will last approx a month! If he can read 20 of the 30 (or 31) days a month, then he’ll earn a reward. For example ice cream date, go swimming, $5, etc!
My Nathan is really excited about this new system! He likes to visually see his progress, plus he really likes having a fun bookmark! I already know I will be designing some others in the near future!
You can download the PDF below! Just print them at home on cardstock and then cut out! To make it more durable, we did put them through our home laminator. But, if you don’t have one, then don’t stress. I really think leaving it as plain cardstock will be fine for just the 1 month! If you don’t want to punch your bookmark, then you could also laminate it and then use a marker to mark off the days.
Enjoy and happy reading!!
