Use this reading log to make your students think more about a fiction book they are reading.
There are three parts: describe a character's traits, tell about a problem and describe solution, and find root words with prefixes and suffixes.
I have used it as a homework assignment and as an in-class assessment. I assign one side on Monday, due Wednesday, then check what they wrote. The other side is assigned as homework on Wednesday to be turned in on Friday.
When I check the Reading Log on Friday I write comments to help the student improve the content included.
