Reading Log - Freebie!


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.

I have seen so many cute ones with the smiley faces, and the parent signature as well, this one is specifically made for classroom use.

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, 
Love
