How to Keep Track of What Your Kids Read in 2013

how to simplify your homeschool

At the end of 2011 I saw a cool picture in a magazine and decided to use it as a way to keep track of what I read in 2012.

Instead of putting a book back on the shelf after I read, I placed it in the corner of my room.  The stack grew as I read through the year.  Last week I looked through the stack and chose some of my favorites.

This doesn’t take much room and would be a fun way for your kids to keep track of the books they read.  Find a corner of their bedroom and start a stack … If you start this week, you’ll have a stack for all of 2013.

If you don't have room for a stack of books

When my kids were homeschooled, we set up a shelfari account for each of them.  As they read a book, they put it on the “Read” part of their shelf.  If there are books you want them to read, you can add them to their “I plan to read” shelf.

Shelfari has now merged with Goodreads, so click here to see my Goodreads account.

It’s an easy, virtual way to keep track of what your kids read.  If you set a reading goal for 2013, you can enter it on your homepage.  Goodreads will keep track of the number of books you read in 2013.  Be sure to put the date you finish each book when you move it to the “Read” shelf.
