Howdy friends! I was farting around in some old files and realized I had this super cute dog clip art set that was just hanging out for a rainy day. And, as it turns out, it has been raining all day and is supposed to continue into tomorrow - lol! I have gotten a lot of requests for the Common Core Planning Packs in a dog theme, and while I don't really have time to complete all of that, I figured I would throw together a quick freebie for you to enjoy regardless. :)
I created a nightly homework reading log that students can track how many minutes they have read in a month. As they complete a night, they fill in a blank paw with the minutes. At the end of the month they can total the amount and win some "purr-fect" reading treats from the teacher!
Of course, feel free to come up with your own dog-themed rewards and minute totals depending on your grade level and students, but these were a few off the top of my head. You could also only offer small items throughout the year and have mid-range/larger prizes for the cumulative totals they could be working for to the end of the year. I am betting you could also find some great items at your local dollar or party stores too. :)
Have fun planning out your barking good time and enjoy your freebie!
How do you get your students to read at home? We would love to hear in a comment below - thanks for sharing!
