Reading logs are a fantastic way to track the reading rate and reading interests of your students. Hold them accountable for reading in school or at home by implementing one of these 15 reading log options. They are clear, simple, and to the point!
15 variations are included so that you can find the best fit for you class. Blank templates are provided in case you want to print and customize. Contact me if you’d like me to customize a reading log for your class!
Try printing and binding several pages for students to use through the weeks, or print and distribute one page per week. I print 5-8 weeks worth of reading log pages for my students at a time, bind or staple them together, and include a cover page. This enables students to analyze their own reading data throughout the weeks and enables me to keep track of their progress and growth.
In addition to the 15 templates, a cover page is included. This is optional but a fun way to get students to take ownership of their log (I suggest giving students a class period to color/decorate their log in any way they wish). I have included two variations of the cover page: one with the guidelines that I use with my students for the weekly reading log (in color and grayscale), and one with space for you to do the same if you wish (in color and grayscale).
I grade my reading logs each week on the following scale (I give my students the goal of reading 150 minutes at home each week):
30 mins = 1 point
60 mins = 2 points
90 mins = 3 points
120 mins = 4 points
150 mins = 5 points (full credit)
