Summer Fields School Holiday Homework Bingo

Between all the games, swimming lessons, parties and vacations are you finding time to keep your kids learning this summer? When I taught elementary school, I saw kids (especially in the younger grades) fall behind during the summer if they weren’t doing ONE thing. Reading! Whether they’re being read to, learning to read, or reading those huge thick books from their favorite series, kids NEED to read over the summer! So today I’m sharing some tips to make it a little more FUN to fit in reading time during the busy summer!
This Summer Reading Bingo printable is full of ideas for all ages to make reading a little more exciting. Yup, that’s my daughter reading in a (dry) bathtub! You will score some serious cool mom points if you let your kids do it.

I made the printable customizable for your child(ren) – just put the number of minutes for each day at the top, then add some goals or rewards at the bottom. It is recommended that children of all ages read or are read to at least 20 minutes a day! This starts even with your littlest ones – obviously being read to. For my 4-year old, we are going to be working on these ideas together. You can adapt as needed.
