READING AND MARATHONS GO TOGETHER
Kids' Bookmark Marathon
A Kids' Bookmark Marathon is simple. Run! Then read, color and write. Use with "Little-leveled Books" or with any reading materials. Use after a run or turn it around and read, then run. Anything goes.
It's easy as a butterfly in the breeze. Simply go out for a run and come in and read. Color in a butterfly for each book read. Record the title of the book on the Butterfly Bookmark Blank. Click on the graphics to view the full-sized printable PDF charts. Print one for each of your kids and use to earn the KR bookmarks.
Kids earn bookmarks at checkpoints of 7 book-miles, 14 book-miles, 21 book-miles, and at a marathon of book-miles (26).
See our Bookmark Page for more on our FREE KR bookmarks sponsored by USAF.
Go for a mile run before each "read" and run a 26-mile kids' marathon along the way, or go for a short run each time and run a "mini-marathon".
It's fun, healthy, educational and easy.
Complete your marathon and collect your whole set - one for each season.
Teachers: Email for a free set for your classroom and give out to your kids as they run and read. Parents: Print our charts and send them to Kids Bookmark Marathon, firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you the bookmarks.
