We have this years reading tree up and ready to go. This year we are using a paper tree from amazon. We are hoping my very talented sister will one day paint a beautiful tree with a child swinging in a swing sweeping over the wall. But for now the paper tree is perfect. 🙂
This particular tree comes with leaves, acorns and animals. We have decided to designate the acorns for level readers the kids read out loud to me, leaves for books the kids read on their own and animals to chapter books we read as a family together. (At least that is the plan as of today) 🙂
We are looking forward to seeing how full our tree gets over this next year. I hope to blog about our full reading tree next summer around this time.
Back to mental planning and getting things ready for our next year ahead. 🙂

Very cool 🙂 What a unique way of keeping track of the books you read… much more interesting than the lists I write up every once in a while! I would love to see the tree when it is full.
It’s fun for the kids to watch it grow and if there is a bald spot it encourages a few books here and there, so I will attempt to guide a few bald spots haha!
Nice! I need to figure out how I can steal this idea…the visual component I know will be really awesome for myself and the kids.
Feel free to snag homeschooling ideas and adapt them to your needs…that’s what it’s all about. 🙂 glad you like it!
Great idea. I have seen people also use the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (alphabet) which is really cool:)
