One of the biggest hurdles getting ready to go back can be asking yourself: What am I going to put in my reader's notebook this year? One of the great things about teaching is that each year we can start fresh and take out what didn't work well and insert what was needed. That is how today's freebie came to be. I wanted students to be able to track what they were reading in the classroom to make them more aware of genres that they tend to steer towards and ones that they shy away from. This will help students to hopefully diversify their reading, can be a great tool for a conference on types of books students are reading.
