This worksheet helps students and their teachers set reading goals using their independent reading books. I was inspired to start this practice after reading Penny Kittle's "Book Love" and Donalyn Miller's "The Book Whisperer."
The worksheet guides students to determine the approximate number of books they will be able to read by the end of a set period of time (in this case, by the end of the quarter). The worksheet could be easily adapted for different lengths of time or if teachers want to require a different amount of reading per week (I require 2 hours).
You should begin by giving students a quiet place to read for 10 minutes and having them complete the top portion. They can use this data to determine a book reading goal.
There is an free Excel file also available from my page that allows students to type in the data from the 10-Minute Record and it will automatically do the calculations, if you want to check their work.
