    Reading Logs
    By Kimberly

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I do a reading log that is turned in every Monday to me. The log has a form in it where the child/parent logs the date, title of the book, minutes read, and parent initials. The students are required to read 45 minutes per week broken down any way they choose. When they turn it in, I glance it over making sure they read 45 minutes. If not, they miss that much recess (no matter how many days it takes) and read during that time. No make-ups. If they have read 10 books, they get to color in on their Hot Home Reading thermometer. I draw a line across the bottom of the last entry for my ease the next time I check. I only keep track of those who did NOT do their homework. The rest, the kids fill in on the reading board. At the end of the year, I give out awards for the # of books read with a minimum of 50 books. This is the plan I have had the most success with. They also only "forget" the reading log a few times when they have to miss 3 days of recess to make up for it.
