As we enter the new year, many of us like to set New Year’s Resolutions or goals we’d like to accomplish during the new year. Why not set some reading resolutions?

Having a goal will help keep the momentum of the beginning of the school year going and push kids to stretch their boundaries.

Here are some possible ideas:

I will read __ books in 2019.
In 2019, I will read ___ new authors.
I will read (insert book series here) in 2019.
In 2019, I will read ___ chapters every night.

I will read ___ books about ___ in 2019.
I will read ____ (poetry/historical fiction/science fiction/fantasy/autobiography/biography/mystery/etc.) books in 2019.

You’ll also want to set a plan on how to track these goals. A simple notebook should do the trick!
