Color as You Go Summer Reading Challenge Bookmark

As you complete reading tasks, you get to color them in!

Every teacher knows the importance of summer reading. If you’re looking for a fun way to motivate your students to keep reading over the summer, try our reading bookmark. It asks kids to tackle a summer reading challenge, then color in each task as they complete it. It’s a great way to keep reading on their minds all summer while also making it fun.

Download the bookmark PDF here. You can print as many as you want to distribute to your class!

And remember, a summer reading challenge isn’t just for kids. We teachers should read for fun over the summer too!
