There are two versions: Level 1 and Level 2. The differences are the number of books and categories suggested. Level 1 suggests 25 books and 5 categories (plus your choice). Level 2 suggests 42 books and 9 categories (plus your choice). Each category is EDITABLE, so YOU get to choose the suggested categories or genres! Suggestions are typed in, but you can delete and edit as you please! You can even get creative with it- instead of genres, type in ANY type of category you would like! Fun Category Ideas: A book from an award winning author, books your parents read as a child, a book published the year you were born, etc! If you’d like, you can have a class discussion at the beginning of the year so your students can decide what they would like the categories to be. We all know students love choice!

Excited to Use

This resource looks great! I’m planning on using this challenge throughout the year. Aiming for students to complete 2-3 of these charts. That way they are reading different genres.

Trisha C.

This will be great for motivating students to read a variety. I really like that it is simple for students to do to track reading. Can easily be done if we end up working from home again this year.
