Reading Rewards

Kevin finally finished his reading chart!  Each one of those squares he colored in equals 3 books that he read all by himself.  He's only 5 years old, but he's really taking off as a reader.  His favorite stories are Amelia Bedelia books and lift-the-flap books.  Sometimes he gets grumpy about having to read (or write), but I've found that the trick is to lure him in with a funny picture.  Illustrations really make the book at this age.

On this reading chart there are several stops along the way including a school house, store, pond, etc.  At each stop he gets a different prize.  It really motivated him to continue reading.
