How to Use this Product
My students tend to love to read. I was struggling with keeping the ones who did not enjoy reading accountable for their reading. With this product, you can give students periodical check-ins a few times a week. Have the sheets available for students to complete either for homework, a specialized time, during their silent reading time, or as an early finisher activity. You can even use them for guided reading and book clubs!
I let me students decide which activity they would like to complete and in what order they would like to complete it. I have them in a bin organized by topic. I ask them to turn them into me when they have completed their entire book. I expect one bundle (at least 5 activities) done every two weeks (you be the judge depending on the novels or books your kiddos are reading). Use the activity however it works best for your classroom!
The goal is to hold the students accountable for their independent reading but still foster the love of reading and choice!
Each topic, except the book review, has different leveled sheets so each child is set up to find success/ a challenge. I attempted to make them all look similar so students would not be worried by the fact that another student's sheet looks different than their sheet.
You could also decide to give all of the students the same sheet, and switch them out with the more challenging sheet(s) as the year progresses.
Print in color or on colored paper for added engagement/ organizational ease.
