This handout is inspired by Donalyn Miller's 40 Book Challenge from The Book Whisperer. The intention of this creation is to replace the traditional daily reading log.
Genres (historical fiction, mystery, graphic novel, free choice, fantasy/general fiction, realistic fiction, informational, biography) have been adapted for younger elementary students to increase the appeal of the challenge, as well as to make it more attainable for all students, regardless of their reading levels.
Instead of daily logging, students "log" their completed books in each of the genres in the given pages. Students can keep the handout pages in a plastic sheet protected reading folder or in another safe spot for the year. Thanks for downloading, enjoy!
