A weekly reading log for students to use when reading at home. This log will help students be accountable for reading at home every night and it will help you monitor what they're reading. The log helps students be more thoughtful in their responses to nightly reading. On one sheet of paper there is a space to write every night. Along with with a list of questions they can answer. A couple of the questions included are:
-What type of connections did you make? Did what you read remind you of something else?
-What did you learn that was NEW or SURPRISING from the book or chapter?
There are guiding questions to help students think about what to write for their answers. This list of questions gives students who aren't as confident in their writing a choice in what to write about. And for students who need a push, teachers can assign the questions they want answered.
