After using many reading response logs I found these to be the most useful. Before the students took these home we listened to a story and then modeled and did shared writing to be sure the students would know what to do when working with their parent or older sibling at home. The lined response log was used by students that needed a guiding line when writing. The unlined response log was used by students that either needed to respond with a drawing or did not need a line to guide them when writing. Because of the response logs' format I was able to quickly check them at the beginning of our small group reading time with time to exchange books. The parents were to respond about their child's fluency, any items to be praised, any areas that needed to be addressed and/or their child's interest in the book. The parent could also tell me if they liked the book or not. The reading response log was a great way for me to have daily contact with parents. Sometimes it might be a note and other times it might only be a smiley face.
