March was one of my favorite months as a kid. One reason was because March has St. Patrick’s Day and green was my favorite color, but the other reason is because March is Reading Month! I found my love for reading around the middle of second or third grade. The day I got my library card was one of the happiest days of my life, as a kid. I’m not even joking. Going to the library and browsing up and down the rows of books was something I very much enjoyed. So, as you can imagine, I was forever filling out and adding extra pages to the reading log my teachers would give me. Especially during March is Reading month. There were extra incentives for reading during that month and I always wanted to cash in on those incentives!
About March is Reading Month
Obviously reading is very important all year long, but March is the month that has been designated as Reading Month. Elementary schools typically send home a calendar for the month of March with various reading activities that kids can do. For example, you may see activities like:
- Read a book about a favorite animal
- Turn off the TV and have a family reading night
- Read a book to your pet
The month is filled with fun activities to get kids to turn off the electronics and read a book!
Reading Log Free Printable
As a parent, you can help your kids keep track of the books they’re reading with this free reading log. One thing I like is having the kids write a very short, one sentence summary of what they read. It helps them reflect on what they just read and make connections. If your child is not able to write a sentence yet, that’s OK! Have them tell you and you write it for them.
Do your kids have their own library card? If not, take them to the library to get one, print off this reading log and start reading today!
