Reading Chart - free printable

UPDATE: I updated my reading chart and posted the new one here. It has better squares and looks more like a board game. 

I originally made this for my kids for a "summer reading chart" but by the time I got around to finishing it school was about to start. 

Lucky me, we can still use it because my little first grader daughter has to read for 15 minutes every night. 

I personally struggled with reading as a young child. I specifically remember being in first grade and sitting at the kitchen counter, while my mom was cooking dinner, and I was trying desperately to read a basic "Spot the Dog" book and breaking down into tears because I couldn't do it. Reading was so frustrating. Today I love to read and always have a book close by, but I'm still a slow reader, but that's fine with me, it means I can enjoy the book longer. :) 

So if you need some motivation to help your little readers I made these reading charts / board games.
I love how the kids turned out, but am not loving the squares, I should have used my program to make straight lines instead of free handing it. I might redo it.

This is the one my children specifically asked for. Their favorite place to go is a play zone that has a rocket theme, so that is their prize.

I made a reading chart with a generic prize reward that could represent just about anything.

I just really liked this school building doodle. 

Here are my cute little ones headed to school. I always base my drawings off them, that's why the little girls are usually blond with a pony tail and the boys have a mop of brown hair. 
While they are the same size, our little girl is actually 2 years older. Our little boy is really tall like his dad. 

We used stickers to mark off each day they read. You could also use check marks or amount of time they read. 

Since it looks like a board game you could write in little prizes along the way, "Ice cream" "Movie Night" "Go to the Zoo" etc. 

Each square can represent reading at least one book per day (little children) or reading 30 minutes (older children).

There are 31 squares so you could print one of these off for each month

Where did I get this idea? I actually googled "Summer reading chart" and found a lot of great charts but I really like this great idea found at In her blog she explains that each small sticker represents each of her children.  Check out her blog for more details. 

So after finding this idea and adding my own doodles to it, this is how it turned out. 
Everything important goes on my fridge. 

 What's funny is that I spent all that time drawing and editing on my computer and my little girl made her own that she likes just as much. But you have to admit hers does look pretty awesome. 


  1. Thank you so much for all the free printables! When it comes to chore charts and reading charts I always have good intentions to make them but I never get around to it. My boys will love these charts. I know you make them for you but I hope you realize how much you are helping other moms at the same time.

    1. Thank you so much Shelley. That really means a lot!!

  2. Loved how Sierra made her own chart...Hannah did the same thing recently. She was SOOOOOO excited to move to the new rental ("It's big and I can run around in it and it has a big yard with woods!") that she made her own countdown chart of days until the move. One day Hyrum thought she was off count and marked off a square for her.....oooooh, boy, was he in trouble!!!

    Love all the ideas and printables. And just knowing what you're up to!

    Take care!

  3. Thank you so much for the idea! Now I find that purpose. I need to have "reading with purposes" activity for my students :)

  5. Despite being less expensive than the Macujo method, Jerry G involves bleaching, which can cause long-term damage to treated hair. Weed abstinence for more than 120 days. This should go without saying, but in order to detox from marijuana, you must stop using it altogether. Whether you go cold turkey or take it slowly, the detoxification process cannot begin until cannabis is completely taken out of the picture. Abstaining from weed for more than 120 days is an effective way to quit for good. Detox shampoos are unlike any other shampoo you will find in the supermarket! The manufacturers create results that cannot be duplicated with lower-quality products using unknown proprietary formulas. Visit:

  6. Some say that flushing is the best method of ridding your body of THC and some other drugs. Like natural detox, flushing is completely legal. - okeyprog. It’s also quick but less reliable than sync urins because it may not work as effectively as it should. My contemplations are in accordance with I offer trade this product, and here are my thoughts. Flushing comes down to drinking lots of water and/or taking niacin flush pills. Before you complete your purchase, check if you’re buying a female kit. Male vizinators have an artificial penis, which you definitely do not need. Female vizinators, on the other hand, have only a urine pouch that you can drain by removing the nozzle. Simply pour the clean urine from the kit into your cup and hand it in. The best way to make sure no one notices your substitute urine is to tie it around your body.
