These reading logs I created to allow students to make simple and easy daily reading goals. There are two different logs that track either by minutes or amount of pages. Each log has a modified log for students who need more space to record. The reason I created these reading logs is because many new reading curriculum programs that align with the CCSS have children create daily goals, yet there was no area that allows students to record these goals on the reading logs provided.
I make the goals SIMPLE! Before using these reading logs, I taught a lesson on creating reading goals. Many times after a mini-lessons students are sent away with a task, such as making a prediction, or describing a main character. These reading logs serve as a reminder to students as to task.
The goals that we create are easy and simple to record. The space provided on the reading logs was created to keep the goal simple and direct such as, make a prediction, enjoy the text, look for character traits and evidence, search for a theme, etc. These logs were designed to be simple and FAST to fill out! There is also an area where students can reflect on how they did by simply circling YES or NO for meeting their daily goal. I have used these logs with my third graders and they have been extremely useful for my wide variety of learners! I hope you enjoy!
