Oooooh, reading logs...... I've changed mine A TON of times over the past few years, but have found the one I'm using now works out the best for me! I used to be terrible at checking them consistently, my students would fill up their logs a different times, and many just simply didn't participate! With this year's log, my students record their required, nightly reading at the top (I write in the dates before I copy it.....this seems to really help the parents/kids for some reason!) and any EXTRA reading at the bottom. This helps me easily see who is doing the minimum or going above and beyond! I collect the logs every two weeks to check for completion and to see what books the kids have been reading at home! If the logs are complete, the students earn a Reading Star ticket! (See earlier post for info and download.) With the exception of a few students, the reading logs come back complete every time! You can click on the photo to download a copy! If you'd like me to send you the Word version in order to edit the directions at the top to better fit your class requirements, leave me a comment with your email and I can send it to you!
