Reading Logs

Reading logs are due every Monday. Students are required to read 30 minutes each night for a total of five days. While trying to give students responsibility and prepare them for middle school, I am giving the students a reading log in which they should respond to different questions/reading strategies for nonfiction or fiction books. For each written response, I expect students to write at least one to two well written paragraphs. (5-7 sentences in each paragraph). This reading log will count as a homework grade.

See below for our weekly reading logs.
