This Essential Supplemental works out great as an in-class reading
journal/reflection tool. I've found that at times students need more accountability for their IDR (Individualized Daily Reading) time, especially if I am working with a small group or conferencing during this period. This journal holds students accountable while strengthening reading skills. For each daily IDR period a student needs to fill in the date, title, author, pages read that day, and reflect on their reading with either a comment, question or connection. This download includes a title page, 1 page reminding students how to fill in the journal, and 4 journal pages. One way to manage the journals is to hand them out monthly (4 journal pages at a time with 5 entry spots per journal) and require them to be turned in at the end of the month. Feel free to edit/use this resource how it works best for you and your classroom.
