Get your tweens and teens reading this summer with a fun summer reading challenge!
Many teens love to read, but they may need an extra push to get reading done over the summer. My free Summer Reading Challenge is a free download that can make it fun!
How the Summer Reading Challenge works
First, click this link and download the Summer Reading Challenge – it is two PDFs.
Next, choose a goal! I thought ten books was a good goal, so one of the pages has 10 empty books (in cute rainbow colors)! But it doesn’t matter – your tween can read less books and just decorate the extras, or you can print out another sheet and they can read more than ten!
If you want to create a prize, just brainstorm what that can be and write it on the bottom of the page under the books. I didn’t make a designated place to write it since reading is its own reward – I know, I’m kind of cheesy. And a nerd.
What could the reward be? How about a trip somewhere fun, like an amusement park? Or just something simple like an outing to get ice cream. Or it could be some sort of item that your tween or teen has been wanting. Or how about having some friends over for an end-of-summer sleep over?
Anyways, set a goal and then get started. As your tween reads each book, they can write in the name of the book on one of the empty covers.
Does your tween or teen need some extra motivation? If so, the other PDF has that covered. There are 25 different ideas for books to read.
As they read each type if book, they can fill in the square with that idea. Why not treat it like a bingo game? Try to get five in a row! Maybe each row could have its own little prize.
However your tween or teen wants to do it, have fun and get some reading done!
Summer Reading Journal
If your tween is extra excited about this, why not get a Summer Reading Journal? I have a fun Summer Reading Journal at my Etsy store.
The Summer Reading Journal is an instant download of 28 different pages with a pretty rainbow theme. It’s a place to track your books and your reading as well as commemorate everything you love about books. Organize your thoughts about books with review pages and places to write your favorite quotes!
Book recommendations for tweens
Does your tween or teen need some ideas for books to read this summer? If so, I have lots of articles filled with book recommendations. Take a look:
I also often recommend books for teens, tweens, and adults in my newsletters, so get on my list if that interests you!
