Summer reading charts are fun ways to encourage children to read during their break from school. You can think up some things together that your child can work toward earning as a reward for filling out their reading chart.
Having a chart to keep track of reading minutes helps kids have a visual of their accomplishments. It's exciting for them to see the spaces being filled in and thinking of how close they are to receiving their reward.
I created this simple reading chart that you can print out to use in your own home. Choose a number of minutes that your child agrees to read. When they have read the amount, they can fill in one of the sections of the circle. After they have filled in all the circles in a column, they can redeem for a small reward. After they have filled in their whole reading chart, they can earn a bigger reward.

Here is the printable summer reading chart just for you! When you print your copy, the words "Home Crafts by Ali" won't be through the middle of the chart.
