FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Reading Log and Response Forms for Lifelong Readers”

by Rainbow City Learning
3rd - 6th Grade

When it comes to creating and encouraging lifelong readers, isn’t it really all about the books? Connecting students with books they love, books they will open to find the magic inside, is the first step to creating lifelong readers. 
As teachers, we need a way to keep track of what kids are reading and to hold them accountable for the way they spend their reading time. It’s kind of a slippery slope. We need to keep track, but kids need to be able to explore and read for the sheer pleasure of reading. 
How can this be managed? Here’s my idea: keep paperwork to a minimum and keep it meaningful. Most of your students’ reading time should be spent reading, not on endless paperwork. 
This resource includes five classroom forms that I have used in my Rainbow City classroom with results that made me a happy teacher! Just enough record keeping while continuing to feel the joy of reading. 
These forms will fit nicely into your Interactive Notebooks or Readers’ Workshop folders. I hope they will help you as you continue to encourage lifelong readers in your classroom!
