Create a Train Reading Chart
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.
