Young readers are often unable to appreciate their progress or to understand why it is important to spend time reading each and every day. Help motivate your child to become a more avid and consistent reader by creating a train-themed reading chart that can serve as a visual reminder of their progress. By adding a new train car for every book they read, your child will better see how each book contributes to their progress as a learner and a reader. By creating a reading chart for yourself as well, you will show your child that everyone, no matter their age, is always growing as a reader!
Note: If your child is not interested in trains, feel free to swap in artwork that reflects their interests! Get creative and find a theme that will truly speak to your child. The directions below can be followed and adapted to your child's preferences and tastes.
