These reading logs are intended to extend students’ nightly reading to make the process more interactive and engaging. Students will actively use their reading books each week by completing either a fiction or nonfiction interactive reading log. This resource also serves to teach parents what types of comprehension skills their student is learning in the classroom.
On the top of the log, students and parents will fill in the date, book title, and total minutes read Monday-Thursday. Then students are instructed to complete activities that go along with two books that they read that week. One activity focuses on word study and vocabulary and the other focuses on comprehension of fiction and nonfiction texts. On the fiction interactive reading logs, students will explore narrative elements, sequencing, and adjectives while focus on their writing skills. The nonfiction interactive reading logs focus on identifying and illustrating facts as well as keywords that relate to a nonfiction topic. Similarly students have opportunities on the nonfiction log to write, revise, and edit their work.
There are four interactive reading guides in this resource: two fiction and two nonfiction.
