I assign as homework every week this reading response log. I ask my students to read 20 minutes every night, but only require them to fill out one section of the reading response four nights per week. This form could also be used as a whole class or small group accountability tool for centers and/or the Daily 5.
As I look through my students completed reading logs I really enjoying seeing the good books they are reading! I can also catch a glimpse of how much they are comprehending, and their writing skills-all while they practice the ever important skill of summarizing.
