Have your child keep track of the books she reads by having her write them on a reading tree. When the tree is full of leaves she will be impressed by her accomplishments.
Cut out a trunk and branches for the tree with the brown construction paper. Tape the tree to a wall where your child can reach the branches. Cut out leaves with the green, red and yellow construction paper. With your child, fill out the first leaf with a book your child has recently read. Include the title of the book, the author and the date when the book was read. Have your child glue the leaf onto one of the braches. Place the empty leaves in a ziplock bag with a pen. You can tack the bag next to the tree. After your child has read a book, remind her to fill out a leaf and add it to the tree.
