How the reading program works:
Learners receive a flamingo token and a reading passport. The tracking posters should be placed in order on the classroom wall for all to see. Once a learner completes a book, they receive a stamp in their passport and their flamingo can go “island-hopping” and be stuck on the corresponding poster on the classroom wall. Learners love to see how all their classmates are progressing and it creates friendly competition between them. For every five books read, a reading certificate is awarded. Once the final island has been reached, a reading badge is awarded and learners can place their flamingo anywhere on the large island printout next to various island props.
– The reading passport works best when printed A5 or A6 size.
– Use stickers or a stamp to “stamp” learners passports.

– Print the island background on A3 or A2 sized paper and laminate.
– Print the Hawaii props on A4 sized paper and laminate.
– Print the flamingo tokens and laminate and then cut out individually.
– Print the certificates on cardboard and laminate the badges.
