Need a way to monitor your students' at-home reading with more than just a parent signature? Look no further! This bundle includes 36 weeks worth of reading logs for fictional text, with 4 critical-thinking prompts and/or question stems per page (Monday-Thursday)! The prompts/stems engage students in critical thinking, such as analyzing the story elements, author's purpose, making character inferences, theme, drawing conclusions, vocabulary development, distinguishing main ideas and details, summarizing, and a WHOLE LOT MORE! The prompts are easily understandable, with plenty of space for students to write. Pass the paper out on Monday, and collect them on Friday. A brief glance will tell you right away if your students are thinking within, or beyond, the text, and can help guide your instruction in the classroom! And yes, there IS a place for a parent signature!!! I also included a guide on how I use the reading logs in my classroom. Check out the thumbnails above for examples of the prompts!
I also have a non-fiction version of the reading logs available:
Daily Home Reading Logs: Non-Fiction - Grades 4-5
And I've bundled my non-fiction & fiction reading logs at a 20% DISCOUNT:
Daily Home Reading Logs: Fiction & Non-Fiction Bundle - Grades 4-5
This bundle was created specifically with 4th and 5th grade standards in mind, but it would be a great enrichment project for 3rd graders who are ready for this kind of critical thinking!!!
