During reading stations each student has a large gallon size ziploc bag with his/her name on it. Inside the bag they keep the book they are currently reading, the current month's Reading checklist (which is what you are buying here) and a writing journal. For the younger kids, I go to Home Depot and have them cut the composition notebooks in half. This prevents wasted space and is less daunting for a little kid. Every day, students will have independent reading time (during stations). They will read a chapter out of a book, or an entire book, if it is short. Then, they will choose ONE of the activities from the checklist, complete it, then write the date in the box. Some activities require writing. If this is the case, then students will write their responses in their journal, including the date. Each month, I change out their checklists and they begin with a new chart. The charts only slightly change from month to month. Enjoy!
