The product is modeled off the 40 Book Challenge discussed in the book The Book Whisperer by Carolyn Miller. In the book Miller challenges her students to each 40 books over the school year.
Students will be required to ready a variety of genres during the course of the year and record what books they read. To ensure students are reading they will respond to the text in their Reading Joural and have reading conferences with the teacher.

A Reading Journal Label (prints two per page)
40 Book Challenge Genre Checklist (This checklist can either be printed and glued into the Reading Journal or printed on cardstock and used as a bookmark. It has boxes students can color in as they finish books from specific genres. Prints two per page)
A Reading List Chart (This is a sheet designed for students to keep track of all the books students have read over the course of the year.)
Weekly Reading-at-a-Glance (The weekly reading at a glance is similar to traditional reading logs but is intended for use during independent reading. It also includes a “four square” that requires students to practice reading strategies. Students complete one a day and turn it in on Friday)
