The summer’s holiday has sneaked up on me! I just wasn’t ready for my son to finish this school year… Last year, I created a reading challenge using tasks & points to be earned by completing tasks (2016 challenge). It didn’t seem to work quite as well as I’d like (ie. he lost his booklet halfway through). At least I got him reading more than he would’ve! So this time, I thought to adapt a board game he knows & loves using ‘reading books’ as currency. It’s all set up on our wall and he appears to be excited to start! I’m excited to start! Here’s what it looks like:
I have made up this board myself and I’ve used images that are familiar to my son… If you’re making your own board, pick ones your children are familiar with.
Before you start playing, each player should have a stack of their own TBR pile. We plan to go to the library and max out our cards with books. This should give us enough variety & choice throughout the summer as we play.
Following Monopoly Jr rules: roll 1 dice and move along the board. If you land on un-owned property, you have to buy it and if you land on owned property, you have to pay rent.
