Students may use this weekly Bellringer and Sustained Silent Reading handout to log the answers to their daily bellwork, and a GIST of the book they are currently reading independently.
Each day, I open with a daily dose bellwork and the students record their answer in the left column. Then, they complete 10 minutes of silent reading and give a GIST of the pages they read that day.
This helps students retain what they have been reading and creates an easy classwork grade to use at the end of the week, with little work on the teacher's part.
I hope you find this useful in your classroom!
