Re: reading logs

I use similar parent/teacher communication logs with my “Baggy Books” that I send home with children to read every night. The parent will write the title, initial whether they read to, with, or if the child was able to read the story independently. I usually just give them a book on their level to read every night. Sometimes, they will see what other books are in the series on the back of their books that they take home and come back the next day and ask, “Can I read this book tonight.”

After I watched this presentation, I think it would be more beneficial to all of my students to let them have a choice in which book on their level they would like to take home. I would also like to incorporate some more questions/responses as a homework assignment after they have read their stories. Currently, parent and child read the story, sign the log, and then discuss the book using “Mr. Hand.” ( Who were the characters, what was the setting, discuss problem/solution, make connections to the story, etc.) I would like to include some higher leveled thinking (HOTS) questions for them to complete with a book that they were more motivated/interested in reading to see if their reading performances grow.

    I too used to have parents simply sign each night that their child read the book in their folder. This did accomplish repeated reading, however I wanted to have them work on comprehension too. So... more
