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.
– 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! 🙂
