Reading Passport

Grades 3-8


Why it works

In the fall students make passports to use throughout the school year. Every time they read a book, the teacher or librarian stamps their passports. Passport pages can represent different genres. Students must read a book from each genre to get a stamp on every page. Other passport themes could include setting, type of main character, sub-genres, etc. This could be a school-wide contest culminating in a prize drawing for students with completed passports.

Motivates students to read new genres or themes

Introduces students to other genres while still encouraging free choice
