To encourage her to want to read books on her own and give her a visual record of her accomplishments, I made a big poster called "Catherine's Reading Grid." In each square I wrote the name of a book (some are blank until I get more books from the library).
When Catherine reads a book, she can color in that square with a crayon. Perhaps by the end of the year she will have colored the entire grid. We'll see.
Sabrina loves to color some of the squares too:
Sabrina wants her own grid, but I can't decide what to put in her grid to show what she has accomplished. I may wait until she starts to read and give her very beginner level books.
