This reading log can be used in a variety of settings, such as homework or during silent reading. It is based on five comprehension strategies: predicting, questioning, making connections, and summarizing. The aim is to guide students through text and build their "tool kit" for making sense of what they read. Every time the students read, they will write a prediction, ask two thick and thin questions each, make text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections, and write a summary of the main events. Differentiation is easy! Students can select their own reading materials, or you can guide them based on Lexile Levels. You can also determine the amount of time the students read, and set a different limit for certain students. This is most beneficial for middle-grade students who have a solid foundation in reading independently.
