A child in elementary school should read independently every day. But how is a busy teacher supposed to make sure that each student is getting in that crucial time? Use Elementary Aryn's Read and Respond Log! I use this as a nightly reading homework assignment, and there is a place for parent signatures. However, this resource could also easily be adapted for use within the classroom during the school day. This particular "Read and Respond" Log has space for the students to write in a weekly focus question, which can be provided by the teacher based on the reading skill needs of his/her students. My Read and Respond Log is a great way to kill the 2 proverbial birds with a single stone- your students will get both the independent reading time and the targeted skill work that they need on a daily basis!
