Want to make reading logs meaningful and purposeful? Logs for Every Learner is it!
We all have a range of readers in our class no matter what grade we teach! We all have a range of readers and types of readers and we have to meet the needs of ALL of our kids!
One way to do this is through independent reading and scaffolding expectations so that all learners feel successful.
SET 1 Readers from level A-I
How to Use the Logs in Set 1
Kids write the title of a book from their bag (this has to be an instructional level text) on the log and throughout the week they try different activities. Once they have completed one of the activities, they mark an “S” for school or “H” for home, depending on where they read their book.
The activities should be modeled by you first.
This log is where kids write the book titles from the books in the bag (or you can) and every time the student reads, they make a tally mark.
This is a log between home and school. Kids need many opportunities to practice their reading. On this log, kids just indicate with a tally mark how many books or times they read at home and school. This is great data!
This is absolutely one of my favorites! With these little cards, I would print and laminate and put them in their book bags. Every time you teach a new book, you put a Post-it on the back cover before you send it home. The book is then added to the student’s book bag and every time they finish a book they make a tally mark on the Post-it. The cards are just helpful reminders! These logs are also especially helpful for beginning Second Language learners that we all have in EVERY grade! An explanation for each log is included in this product.
Set 2 is for readers on a J and above
As you can see the logs gradually increase in demands and information you can gather. The logs and information created here were adapted from best literacy practices from various sources.
You also get reflection and goal-setting sheets as we all know how important it is for kids to be reflective and set attainable goals.
There is also a conference cheat sheet to help you analyze the logs with your students,
Lastly, I have created a genre coding sheet for kids who use the logs that have them identifying genres. The editable file is included so that you can add any genres that I have not included!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!
