Summer Reading Log

Hello, We R Memory Keepers fans, Laura here today. School just got out for us and I want to be sure both of my kids keep up with their reading skills all summer long. Having a summer reading log will help us keep track of all of the books we read this summer. We have some house rules about reading, playing outside, chores, and learning activities the kids must complete before they are allowed to use electronics.

I created a printable log the kids could use each week. It has a space for the date, title of the book, and how many pages were read for each day of the week.

I printed 10 weeks worth (front to back), so five pages total for each of my kids.

To start creating the reading log book, I started with two 8 ½ x 11 inch Cinch book boards. I covered the front and back covers with some fun, summery papers from Amy Tangerine’s On a Whim collection. I adhered the papers using double sided tape. I covered the inside covers with purple and yellow mono cardstock.

To separate each of the kid’s sections, I created tabs using teal and orange mono cardstock and the tab punch board. I labeled them with my children’s names.

Once I had everything together, I assembled the book with the Cinch tool and a small silver Cinch wire.

To make the cover a little more fun, I used some Thickers to spell out “Summer Reading Log” on some of the leftover teal and orange mono cardstock. I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper. Then, I added stickers from the On a Whim collection.

I love the way it turned out. I know I am always more motivated to do what I need to do when I have something that looks nice and my kids are, too! This summer reading log will be the perfect way for the kids to keep track of what reading they do this summer.
