blue bullet point The Amazing Reading Race Passports and Maps: Do you want a fun way to motivate your students to read books on their own?

blue bullet point Do you want your students to enjoy reading as they race around the 7 continents of the world filling out their reading passports?

blue bullet point I love to travel and I love when children become excited about reading. This unique set of reading resources combines both of my passions together!

blue bullet point One of my favorite television shows to watch is The Amazing Race. I enjoy watching all of the interesting countries that the teams get to visit and the difficult challenges that the teams must complete in order to not be eliminated from the race.

I have based this Amazing Reading Race set of teaching resources
partially on the theme of this popular television show.

Amazing Reading Race Reading Passports For Elementary School Students

blue bullet point Each athlete (student) in your classroom, will be required to read 7 different genres of literature, representing the 7 continents of the world.

(There is a second version of The Amazing Reading Race that does not use genres and students can pick any 7 books. I will show the second version after this genre version.)

blue bullet point After students have finished reading a genre, they will fill out those pages in their reading passports by writing a summary of the book and drawing a picture.

blue bullet point Next, students color that continent on their Amazing Reading Race Maps.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the Amazing Reading Race Map. This map contains 7 continents and each continent requires students to read a different genre:

  • North America: Adventure
  • South America: Realistic Fiction
  • Europe: Fantasy
  • Asia: Historical Fiction
  • Africa: Science Fiction
  • Australia: Biography
  • Antarctica: Mystery

Amazing Reading Race Around the World Map for Elementary Students

blue bullet point After a student has finished reading a book (ex: biography), he should color the corresponding continent on his map (ex: Australia).

blue bullet point Your students will be eager to race around the world reading all 7 different genres so that they can color each continent on their reading maps.

Fun Reading Program The Amazing Reading Race 7 continents

blue bullet point This fun set of motivating reading resources also comes with student reading passports.

blue bullet point Students begin their reading passports by filling out information about themselves and gluing (or drawing) a picture of themselves on the front of their reading passports.

blue bullet point After students have read a book, they should find that genre/continent in their reading passports and write a summary about the book. There is also an area for students to draw a picture of their favorite part of the book on those two passport pages.

blue bullet point I have designed the passports to be folded booklets. There are 8 passport worksheets for you to print out. You need to photocopy these worksheets front to back, fold the pages in half, assemble them in numerical order, and then staple the passport pages together.

There are teacher directions provided in this set of teaching resources
on how to assemble the student passports.

Amazing Reading Race Student Passport Directions

Student Reading Passports

blue bullet point There are 8 worksheets to print out in order to make your students' reading passports. The first worksheet (shown below) is the front cover and back cover.

blue bullet point The remaining 7 worksheets contain the pages where students write their summaries for each genre/continent in their Amazing Reading Race passports.

blue bullet point When you look at these 7 pages (shown below), it will look a bit confusing and the genres/continents on each page will appear to not match up with each other. Once you print out all 8 worksheets, follow the directions page for which worksheets to photocopy front to back, and then fold the pages in half, they will all match up to become a passport booklet with a front cover, back cover, and pages numbered in order 1 - 14.










Student Reading Passports:
Version #2 (no genres written on the continents)

blue bullet point I realize that there are teachers who will not want to require that their students read the 7 genres that I have selected.

blue bullet point For this reason, I have designed a second set of Amazing Reading Race resources that encourages students to read 7 books (not 7 different genres).

Amazing Reading Race Around the World Student Reading Map

The student passports look exactly the same,
but I have taken off the genre section on the passport pages.

Amazing Reading Race: Student Award Certificate

blue bullet point After your students have successfully raced around the 7 continents of the world reading 7 different books, present them with the Amazing Reading Race award certificate that is included in this set of teaching resources.

Bulletin Board Display Banner:

blue bullet point Many teachers like to make classroom bulletin board displays featuring their students' reading incentive charts. These classroom displays provide a strong visual reminder to students of the reading goal that they are trying to achieve.

blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of valuable time to assemble their bulletin board displays. Many teachers spend hours of time cutting out large display letters or making a banner on their own at home on their computer.

blue bullet point This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum and grading papers, so I have designed a matching 5 page banner for your bulletin board display.

blue bullet point If you have access to a laminating machine, you can laminate your banner so that it is durable and you can use it again next year.

(5 printable worksheets that are glued together to form a bulletin board display banner.)

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

Name: Mary (Grade 4)
From: New York, U.S.A.

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
