PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This non-traditional reading log allows your students to be in control of their own reading homework each night - and provides a nightly opportunity to work on valuable reading strategies throughout the week.

Students simply write one or two sentences each night about the book they are reading. Strategies include: Monday's Main Idea, Tuesday's Connection, Wednesday's Wacky Word, and Thursday's Choice. Collect the logs on Friday and begin a new log each week. The strategies can be adapted to work for any book and any genre. I hope you enjoy my first TPT product!

Great idea! I always have students reading at home, but I love the idea of having a different focus each night and having students write a brief response. It will create a greater sense of accountability for my kiddos! Thanks!

This is super cute and so easy to implement. I am always looking for quality "homework" that isn't going to take my students forever and is relatively painless. Great job!
On  May 8, 2012Miss DeCarbo answered:
Thank you! :) I find it holds my students very accountable and is something they can do on their own without making it "mom&dad-work" :)
