Are you looking for an editable reading log that you can use to encourage and hold students accountable for independent reading? Includes LIFETIME* UPDATES, too!
Use these during school reading, at home reading, during literature groups, or during book clubs? These versatile fully editable reading calendars encourage students to read, set goals, track progress, and hold themselves accountable. Better yet, students will use their math skills to graph their progress with these monthly reading logs!
Reading outside of school is important. Research shows that time spent independently reading helps vocabulary development and reading skills are improved. These calendars make it more fun for students. This set of calendars is simple to use, and it encourages a love of reading. It also provides you with some great data.
Each calendar has an inspirational reading-themed quote to inspire your readers. Most months have a holiday option as well as a non-holiday option.
♥︎ LIFETIME UPDATES! I am excited to add the calendar dates for you each year. I'll create these for you by March each year for the upcoming school year. Lifetime* = The lifetime updates continue as long as I sell on TpT! ♥︎
The calendars are dated January-December. All calendars come in both color and B&W. These reading logs come in print and use PDF or customizable in MS PowerPoint.
HOW TO USE READING CALENDAR LOGS:
• Make homework more meaningful and simple by simply tracking reading minutes.
• Pass out the monthly reading calendar / perfect homework task.
• Students set a goal for the number of minutes they can read each week at home.

• Students read and record the number of minutes spent reading.
