Summer Brain Book

I found this amazing idea over at Imagination Soup.   This is basically a printable to create a mini summer school binder.  It has a chart where you can track reading, math, and writing.  I reworked it for me.  I wanted mine to be black and white and the rewards are blank so my kids could choose their own rewards (with my help of course...  ;)  I also wanted my kids to do stuff everyday or at least have the option too.  Click HERE for the link to her blog post and printable. Keep reading to find mine below!

Below is a preview and an explanation of what I did.

Here is the cover.  I printed them onto colored paper and slipped them into the front of the old 3 ring binders they used in school!
Here is an accountability sheet.  Pretty simple.  I will check the end of the week to see what they have done and initial if they have earned their reward.  I like having all the boxes so that on a day we are super busy I can just cross it out if its fine with me that they didn't do it.  I printed these on white paper.
I edited her list a little but mine a little.  These I printed on colored card stock and put it in a page protector to use as a divider in the binder.  If I have work sheets or an activity I will place it behind this!
Book list to help keep track of what we got from the library.  Sometimes I forget what they have read... lol.
 Again... this is just the divider with ideas.  I will put worksheets behind it.  I printed this on card stock and slipped it into a page protector.
 Another divider to put math stuff behind!
 These are just ideas.  I liked the idea of having a place for the kids to come up with their own ideas.
My weekly rewards are blank.  I will work with the kids on coming up with their own!


  1. Just came back to print off your awesome covers, and then make my own inside stuff, but realized the rest of it is pretty flexible too! I'm tweaking it a bit, but I'm so excited to try this out this summer!

  2. I don't know if you still mess with this blog-but I just wanted to let you know that I love it. I found it recently and I think it's awesome how much time you put into it. Thanks!
