This fun reading log / journal is a great alternative to the traditional reading log. Created for beginning readers, it is 12 months (with a choice of themes to use for October, November, December, April and August) for children to share a picture of a story they like and someone they like to read with. There is also a reflective piece in a four - part visual checklist on the monthly page, (new month pages with 4 weeks each is now also an option), and single strips are also provided separately:

✔Do I fit reading into my life most days?

✔Do I look at books and listen to stories about things that I am interested in, enjoy and make me laugh?

✔Am I responsible for getting my reading materials to and from school?

✔Do I get ready for bed on time to hear a story?

Having a fun, alternative reading log is ideal for setting a positive tone for homework and reading early in your students’ academic careers! I like using the monthly page as part of the special helper's oral language opportunities.

Enjoy this alternative Reading Log for early readers!
