I created this as a way for my students to set up a writing journal to use in reading Students will use this reading log throughout the school year. Each week, they will write a new entry in the reading log. I designed the log to use for 30 weeks of the year. This log is designed to help the students review skills learned in reading, and practice their critical writing using the RACE strategy. Each six weeks, they get a new selection of leveled readers to read and write about. Most of the reading log entries will be written using the leveled readers; however, they may write a few entries using another book of choice.
I’ve included a table of contents that will be glued in the front of the reading log. I’ve also included some resources for them to use (lists of adjectives, RACE strategy, etc.) that can be glued to the back of the reading log. If used correctly, this is a great tool for students to practice writing and reading skills.
