This download includes 30+ weeks of home reading logs for students. This is designed for students in third, fourth, or fifth grade to complete as homework. Each reading log consists of 5 responses that can be written in response to both fictional and informational texts.
We all know how important it is for our young readers to create life-long habits for reading and learning. As elementary teachers, we have the privilege of fostering a love for reading in our students. Part of creating a life-long reader is encouraging students to build a habit of reading on a regular basis…outside of our classrooms! This reading log is something I created to help just that…instill a habit of nightly reading with my students. These weekly reading logs not only build a reading habit, but also accountability and stamina to read for increasingly longer amounts of time and practice…READING IS THINKING!
Students are able to practice a variety of skills and strategies (compare/contrast, cause/effect, main idea, author's purpose, text features, vocabulary, reading engagement, craft/structure responses, etc.). Key skills/strategies are present throughout multiple weeks (i.e. main idea and details) and can be practiced with any text.
Let me know if you have any questions before downloading!
I'm always eager to grow and learn...please rate and leave feedback so that I can continue my TpT journey!
