So, in my class I like to keep my students motivated to read for both 'read to self' time and when they have free time. In my class, I ask my students to keep track of how many books they read. We call it our reading log. I may have taken this idea from my grade 4 teacher - ohh the good old days when I would curl up on our classroom couch and read little house on the prairie and record how many pages I read in my reading log.
Now, I updated the way that reading log looked, but I didn't want to make it too difficult. Something quick, to the point and without a lot of 'fluff'. Here is how it looks.
Here is what it looks like when it is being used:
1.) Write the date
2.) Write the title
3.) Write what page you started on
4.) Write what page you finished on
5.) Next day - Repeat. *Except* when a student continues reading the same book, I don't make them re-write the title. This is what they do:
- Make the little marks underneath it (I don't actually know what they are called - but I did this when I was in grade 4.)
- Put a star beside the end page when they finish a book. At the end of the year, we count how many stars they get! :)
To grab this freebie,
Have a Wonderful Day,
