In the English classroom it’s important for teachers to help their students develop a love of reading. This means giving students the opportunity to read material that interests them. Many teachers incorporate independent reading into their classroom routines throughout the year.
Some teachers have their students read for 15-20 minutes every day, while others set aside a day of the week to read for a longer period of time.
This independent reading log is a simple tool thto keep students on track and ensure that they are reading with purpose.
*This resource contains two different reading logs for fiction and non-fiction books.
How to use this resource:
•After each independent reading session, students spend 5 minutes completing their reading log: This resource contains 1 page double sided for students to record the date, pages read, and answer a simple question after each independent reading session. This page can be used again and again until the student has finished their book.
•When the student has finished their book they take about 20 minutes to complete the independent reading report: This resource is one page double sided with general questions that apply to any book. This allows the teacher to see that students have actually read and understood their book.
* The teacher may choose to set a challenge for the class. For example, students could be challenged to read 3 books, or 1000 pages during the year or semester.
