Imagine all the good books you can put here and watch your gumball machine quickly fill up!
How to Use the Gumball Reading Tracking Sheet
There are a lot of ways to use this coloring page, but here are some of our favorites:
- Challenge your kids to learn. For an individual challenge, ask the kids to set and achieve their reading goals. Once they are finished with every goal, ask them to shade a gumball. When they fill in all of their gumballs, they get a sweet reading-related reward!
- For group challenge, instead of titles, write the names of the kids who will achieve the goal you set for the class. Create a bigger version of this page and display it in your bulletin board to encourage a healthy competition with your students.
- Use this to reinforce a lesson by filling in those gumballs with values they learn from what they read.
- Reading Assignment Picker. If filled with book titles, reccommend a good read by randomly picking through the use of your magical pointer finger. Close you eyes and ask the kids to say “stop”.
- You can also use this to generate book recommendations from your kids. Ask the kids to fill the gumballs with the titles of their favorite books.
What to Use with This Coloring Page
Who would have thought that tracking your reading progress can be as fun as coloring! On this coloring page, it is definitely possible. As a teacher or parent, we have to think of ways to encourage our kids to bring out the best in them. Right? This is us demonstrating creativity at its highest (and cutest!) level.
While we encourage you to use the coloring tools you like best, here are some of our favorites.
- Crayons – Crayons are still the most reccommended tool for this page – especially when you simply ask the kids to color one gumball for each reading task you gave them.
- Waterolor – Since this will be used mostly as a tracking sheet, Color this first with watercolor. Just be sure to use watercolor paper so colors and water will be absorbed easily. Watercolor is perfect when you want to write something after. Don’t forget to let it dry first before writing.
