Motivate your Child to Read More – a Reading Challenge!

A Fun Way to Motivate your Child to Read More!


motivate your child to read more



















A child needs choice in their reading selection and a choice of when or where to read. We're always looking for ideas to get a child to read more and with all the distractions of video games, the internet, and phones, your child loses sight of the fact that reading is essential!!!   I created this challenge to motivate your child to read more (for even the most reluctant reader) and it is my hope that it works! You can create incentives to go along with this list, make it a competition,  etc. This challenge has two columns - What to Read and Who/What to Read to and a Reading place.

  • How many of the "Read to/Reading Place" items can you complete by your birthday?
  • How many "What to Read" items do you want to complete by Saturday?
  • How many "What to Read" items have you already completed this year and how many can you complete by the end of this current month?
  • How many more items can you complete compared to_________?

And then you can really spice it up with a few incentives after a goal has been met:

  1. This is a great idea! Our five year old was an early reader so sometimes, its “too easy” for him to read and he becomes bored. But, he is very rewards motivated so this may be something we try.

    1. Thank you! I’m so happy to hear that you can use the reward system! Please let me know if there are any other topics that you would like me to cover!
