SHAPING GOOD READING HABITS
I Love to Read. This dynamic, incentive-based program gets children to read books, magazines, short stories and more! When a student reads for 15 minutes, he/she colors in a picture of BW, our Bookworm mascot, on their Bookkeeper Card. When all pictures are colored (representing two hours of reading) the student receives a colorful Book Charm - a plastic book-shaped award that can be worn on backpacks, bracelets, necklaces, etc.

The following listing of items will help you put into place an I Love to Read program that is educationally sound, developmentally appropriate and highly motivating.


Learning to read is fun
I Love to Read - our fun, easy-to-run program - helps students in grades K-5 become excited about reading! Thankfully, this reading program doesn't take up a lot of your time. Today's teachers have much to do, so we have done everything we can to make this program as simple as possible.
I Love to Read is an effective way to help students in Grades K-5 read more.
Students and their parents keep track of how much they read at home using a Bookkeeper Card. Each time a student reads (or is read to) for 15 minutes, he/she colors in a picture of BW (BW stands for Bookworm, and is the name of our program's mascot) on the Card. Once the student has colored in all the pictures of BW (read two hours), the parent or caregiver signs the card and then returns it to school. Each time a student returns a completed card, the teacher provides him/her with a Book Charm, records the accomplishment on the Reading Roster and gives him/her a new Bookkeeper Card.

  2. Tell the students to color in one of the pictures of BW the Bookworm on their Bookkeeper Card each time they read (or someone reads to them) for 15 minutes. Remind them to
    have their parents sign the card and return it to you once they have colored in all the bookworms.

  3. Let your students choose a Book Charm award each time they return a completed Bookkeeper Card. (Encourage them to collect all available colors.)

  4. Check off one of the books next to the student's name on the Reading Roster each time they complete a Bookkeeper Card. Give the student a new Card.
