Product Description
Trying to keep tabs on whether your students are actually doing their 30 minutes of reading every night? Want an easy way to sneak in some CCSS skill instruction and support it with regular review? This reading log is what you're looking for! Printed front-to-back and three-hole punched, this puts it all on one sheet of paper, minimizing the copies you'll need and the likelihood your students will have trouble keeping track of it. Each day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Weekend) students are asked to apply one skill (identifying text structure, determining author's purpose, theme/main idea, etc) to the chunk of text (fiction or nonfiction!) that they've just read that evening. In order to provide optimum flexibility, on some nights there are two questions--one to answer if a student is reading a fiction book, one to answer if a student is reading a nonfiction book (you may have to explain that part; some of my students thought they had to answer both questions and got confused when they couldn't find any diagrams/charts/photos in their fiction book). Once you've taught the skills once and explained how to use the log, though, you can just collect and pass out new ones every other week, stopping only to reteach those skills that students are struggling with as you formatively assess their completed logs. This is also a great tool to use if you normally use a more basic log requiring students to list only their book title and number of pages read each evening and you're getting a sneaky suspicion that they might not actually be doing the reading! This resource was developed to specifically target the fourth grade CCSS standards, but can be used as a review in fifth grade, too.
