Unfortunately, I cannot open word attatchments to see what others have already said. I am forced to use a browser other than exploer. Hopefully I won't be duplicating someone else's idea. I use a calendar template for each month. I ask my second grade students to read about 7 hours a month for a regular month, and modify for shorter months. They record the number of minutes read in the squares. I tell them 20 minutes 5 times per week will get them to the goal. Some read more, some read less, but just about all read more than they would without the calendar. Best wishes.
