This Nonfiction Reading Record Logbook is an effective tool to support elementary students becoming independent and proficient readers of nonfiction / informational texts at their reading level - a Common Core goal for students in grades 2-5.
Set goals and keep track of your students’ nonfiction reading.
Use the reading record to monitor your students’ progress toward the goals you set.
Readers and teacher alike can see at a glance what nonfiction has been read and when.
This visual record of their progress helps readers see just how much they’re accomplishing. Readers take pride in their volume of reading.
Accountability. Pair your students’ nonfiction reading record with an accountability system of your choice: AR quizzes (score of 80% or above) or teacher-created quizzes w/demonstrated mastery - or other accountability system.
Each Nonfiction Reading Record has space to record 10 books.
I give students one booklet per month and set a goal for 10 nonfiction books completed each month. At the end of each month we celebrate with prizes from the prize box. My year-long challenge & celebration goal is the 100 Book Club for Nonfiction (ten sets of ten.)
These are very attainable goals. The nonfiction reader texts are quick and enjoyable.
Students keep the Nonfiction Reading Records in a pocket (included) in their nonfiction interactive notebook or reading journal.
