reading goal craftivity!

First off... WOW! Thank you to everyone who added their top 5 pictures books to the Must Have Picture Books linky!!  You guys are AWESOME {even though I have a HUGE wishlist that just might break the bank}! 

Speaking of books {Did I mention I love books?}, I have converted my Summer Reading Survival Guide into a "generic" school year craft. This craft is very similar to my Summer Reading Survival Guide, but it doesn't include a parent letter or reading chart, it is JUST the craft {which is why it is only $3.00}. This craft comes with 5 different book choices that say: My Kindergarten Grade Reading Goal, My First Grade Reading Goal, My Second Grade Reading Goal, My Third Grade Reading Goal, My Fourth Grade Reading Goal and My School Year Reading Goal.  The writing portion also comes with and without handwriting lines, so you can adapt it to your classroom needs. 


In my classroom, we will be making this craft the first week of school, so my students will know how important it is to read each night.  I MAKE IT A BIG DEAL!!! {I will also teach them about the reading beads they can earn.} Then, I will send this craft home with my students so they can put their goal somewhere special at home!


How do you encourage your students to read, at home, during the school year?
