Independent Reading Logs

Students who are given a purpose for their independent reading, tend to stay more focused.  This results in more time spent practicing reading skills.  Use these response sheets as a way for students to keep track of their reading and their thoughts while reading. When using these logs, it is usually best to begin with a mini-lesson to help students understand what is expected.  These logs are designed so you can choose the right focus for each student.  Log pages can be added to a reading folder/binder to document progress throughout the school year.
