1. Sticker charts: Track progress and unlock rewards

Sticker charts are an excellent way to visually track reading progress. Each book completed earns a sticker, and as the chart fills up, your child can unlock exciting rewards and surprises. This system motivates children and also instils a sense of pride in their reading accomplishments. 

Jaye loves ABC Reading Eggs and is responding so well. His dad and I are really thrilled with what he's getting out of it. We printed off his first certificate for the Zoo Quiz and he was so proud of it. It's a great keepsake to mark his progress." – Jess 

2. Special bookmarks: Marking milestones with style

Create custom bookmarks to commemorate significant reading milestones. These personalised keepsakes not only hold a place in favourite books but also serve as a tangible reminder of the progress made.

Designate a special wall or noticeboard as a reading wall of fame. Display pictures or short summaries of books your child has read, creating a visually stunning celebration of their reading accomplishments. This serves as a constant reminder of their progress and inspires them to explore more books.

6. Reading journals: Capturing thoughts and progress

Encourage your child to keep a reading journal, where they can record their thoughts, favourite quotes, or summaries of books they have read. These journals can serve as personal reflections of their reading journey and allow them to revisit their most loved stories and characters, further enhancing their reading achievement experience. 

7. Surprise rewards: Motivation through exciting surprises

Implement a surprise rewards system where your child can earn points or tokens for reaching reading milestones. They can exchange these points for surprise rewards, such as small toys, special outings, or extra reading time. These surprises add an element of excitement and keep children engaged and motivated to achieve more.

8. Reading challenges: Setting goals and celebrating success

Encourage your child to take on reading challenges, such as reading a certain number of books within a timeframe or exploring new genres. Celebrate their success when they complete these challenges, fostering a sense of accomplishment and inspiring them to push their reading boundaries. 

9. Celebrating with grandparents or friends: Intergenerational reading

Encourage your little one to share their reading accomplishments with their grandparents. Set up special reading sessions where they can choose a book they have read or completed and read it aloud to their grandparents. This not only allows children to showcase their reading skills but also strengthens the bond between generations. Grandparents can offer words of encouragement, share their own favourite childhood stories and create lasting memories connected to the joy of reading.
