If your homework policy encourages students to read for 20-30 minutes a day, a monthly READ-A–THON can be a way to track students homework! Each month, print out the corresponding READ-A-THON sheet. Fill in the time requirement in the directions. For each day a student reads, he/she colors in a symbol on the following monthly sheet. At the end of the month, students that turn in the paper can earn a prize! In my classroom, a parent signature is required for prize redemption!
Optional: Students can record the books they read using the reading log that can also be downloaded from my TPT store. Just copy the reading log to the back of the monthly page and you have reading homework for the month!
