Once a week I have my students read independently for 30 minutes and then have them fill out a reading response worksheet. This quick little worksheet keep the students accountable and gives me a short informal formative / summative assessment of the students' weekly independent reading.
This quick and easy worksheet could be use in place of a daily reading log that could be turned in daily or weekly. There is 2 worksheets per page to cut down on copies. I included 4 different worksheets: 2 facts & 1 question, illustrate your favorite part, buddy talk and text to text, text to self and text to real world.
