At Spanish Playground, we want kids to read and enjoy reading. So, to motivate kids to read more, we have book logs for them to color. Kids color these Spanish reading logs to see how many books they read during the summer.
Reading plays an important role in second language development, so we make Spanish reading logs available as part of our summer program. The Spanish reading logs help kids visualize their progress over the summer and record favorite titles if they like.
Each time they finish a book, they color part of the log. For children reading longer books, each book can represent 15 minutes.
For Summer Spanish Read and Play, there is no set number of books to read or number of minutes that kids should read each day. It is important that the reading logs not make reading a chore. Also, coloring the log should not become more of a focus than enjoying the book.
Ideally, children will read regularly because they love to read. The Spanish reading logs build on the experience and give parents a chance to celebrate reading with their children.
Be sure to sign up for Summer Spanish Read and Play for additional reading logs and challenges. We’ve got book lists, fun activities and online resources to keep kids engaged with Spanish all summer long.
