Encourage your kids to read more with this reading log printable and reward them for completing a full page of logging!
I’m always trying to encourage my kids to read more because it’s an easy way to pass the time, have fun and learn more vocabulary and comprehension. Some schools require reading logs for students and I thought it would be a good idea to create one myself!
The idea is to use this all throughout the year, so that my kids are encouraged to read by filling up their reading log. They can log their time or pages of a book and we can decide together what reward might be appropriate for completing a full reading log page.
It might be fun and educational to use our printable play money as a reward to “earn” towards a special treat!

Reading Log Printable Tips
Printing and Logging
The reading log I have designed is perfect for a monthly challenge of reading daily and your kids can also color it up and decorate it as they see fit. You can keep their reading log in a binder and add pages over time or consider putting it up on fridge so you see often.
I have found that when the log is in full view daily, my kids are more likely to be motivated to log another line of reading time. Depending on the age of your kids, you can let them log pages or minutes read.
If you have younger children who need help with their reading, you can still use this log to record the time you read together. It still counts in my book, as long as they are spending quality time enriching their brains with reading time.
Challenges and Rewards
The end of each reading log page is a line to enter a reward. You can decide with your kids what would be an appropriate reward. Oftentimes it does not need to be something huge, rather just a little treat to look forward to at the end of each log page.
With older kids, you can even challenge them to not break the chain and log time every single day. There are many variations possible when it comes to challenging your kids and providing them with little rewards for motivation, so be open to all possibilities. You can even ask them for ideas and come up with a personal challenge and reward agreement.
Make it a Competition
Finally, you can also use this reading log printable for the entire summer, for example and make it a competition. Especially if you have siblings in the family, I like to always add an element of competition by challenging them to outdo each other. Whoever logs the most pages by the end of summer can get a special prize as well. I’m a huge fan of making learning like a game. Whether someone simply wins the title for being a super accomplished reader or gets to pick a gift – it’s all makes the process more fun and enjoyable for the whole family I think!
