Reading Log with Directions
Excel Spreadsheet for 500-Page Reading Challenge
Grading Converter for 500-Page Reading Challenge
Independent reading is important for all ages. I have found that making independent reading a competitive challenge triggers my students' interest.
The students must complete a reading log, with signatures. Once they've turned this in, the book's length goes next to their name on the excel spreadsheet. I display this chart over the course of the marking period to motivate them via competition.
At the end of the marking period, I've included a score converter so you can easily and fairly turn the pages into a weighted grade.
