This is a fun and rewarding way to encourage students to participate in Independent Reading throughout the school year! My students have loved it each year, and many often find new genres that they didn't think they would enjoy before. I love that!! :)
This pack includes a letter to explain the program to parents and a basic "My Book Report" page that students will complete for each book they read. Filling out the Book Report pages lets you know they did, in fact, read the book, and it reinforces reading comprehension skills. Students must identify the main characters, setting, and basic plot. I also include a section for them to share their favorite part of the book, whether or not they would recommend it to others, and the reason why. (That last section is always the most fun to read. :) )
You will need to have some sort of "Reading Rewards" that will motivate your students to participate, but it doesn't take much!
