Holiday To-Do list : For The Book Lover

reading list printable template // mono+co

I have another list that I want my kids to fill up, school holidays or not : book titles that they have read or plan to read.  So I did a very fast sketch of a lady reading, applying it on the same template for the movie list done yesterday, and it is ready for download below.

So what can I fill it with?  Other than the titles that the kids pick out randomly from the shelves, here are some recommending sites that I find useful :
// The NLB librarians have put up a list of titles suitable for children and teens.  I wish they have a similar list for Mandarin books too.
// This list of 2014 Notable Children’s Books from The American Library Association might be worth a look if your kids are done with the NLB’s list.
// This PDF list of 100 Children Books of All Time compiled by Scholastic in 2012 contains titles suitable for kids from age 0-11+.  I’ll love to have kids checking off the titles that are done, and then proceeds to motivate her to finish the rest of the list.
// I also found two other book recommending websites worth bookmarking : this and this.


Recycled Envelopes : Part 2

The school holiday has started.  Since it is only for a week, we don’t plan much.  Not too little either, so that we have a variety of activities to choose from, even if we can’t complete all.  Fab Four.  That’s what I like. With the leftovers from here, I printed a 4×8″ list with it.  I love lists!

Hit a snag with a mis-spelled ‘museum’.  Only realize after printing out.  Since this is for a week only, I’ll correct it with a Sharpie later.

An empty template right at the bottom is for future holidays.  I learn how to print on journal cards with instructions from Paisley Press here, and my mounting template on A4 paper for 5×5″ and 4×8″ is here.
