I created this chart because I wanted to hold my students more accountable for their home reading. I also wanted to make their home reading matter more and have more of a purpose. I gave each student a home reading journal so they could keep all of their reading activities in one place. They could choose which night they wanted to do their activity on as long as it was completed and turned in by Friday. I would then look them over and write comments. I noticed a big improvement in home reading effort after starting this.
