After reading a chapter, students are asked to draw a small illustration and give an appropriate title of the events in the chapter in the corresponding chapter box and add explanations as needed. This sheet is a way to track students' independent reading progress and allows for different students to be reading different books.
Possible differentiation includes assigning a certain number of chapters to illustrate and then allowing students to choose which chapters they would like to draw. Students could also work in groups and be assigned a row or a column of drawings and then share their work with others. Instead of drawing, students have to find a online picture or a picture from other print media to represent or symbolize the chapter. Use this in conjunction with my Title Timeline. This sheet could be used for more visual learners and the Title Timeline could be use with your more linguistically talented students.

This product contains two versions. The first version contains chapter headings for each box for up to 30 chapters. The second version does not contain chapter headings. If additional chapter boxes are needed for either version, print multiple copies of page six in this packet and use according to the book title you are monitoring through illustrated chapter titles.
