Reading Incentive Bookmark – Back to School Time  
Piece of paper 4"x 8"
Clear packing tape (or Laminate)
Stickers or permanent marker
Ribbon or twine about 8" to 10"
Fold the paper in half. Lay back flat and cut the top corner off of one side. Draw a chart down the front
of the paper (see example). Decorate to liking. Fold in half again and laminate, or use packing tape to
"laminate." Make a slit in laminate on the backside where the corner was cut off so that there is an
opening where you can put the stickers or marker. Use a paper punch to make a hole at the top.
Thread ribbon or twine through the hole. For every 20 minutes that you read you get to place a
sticker in a box (or make a checkmark in the box with the marker.) Store the stickers or markers in
the back slot. When all boxes are filled, make a deal with your parents to earn a reward.
