Reading Logs

A Note About Reading Logs in First Grade:
 
We are beginning a new routine in first grade – individual reading logs. The purpose of the reading log is to encourage and celebrate daily reading! Whether your child is reading a book, magazine or on the computer, (s)he is choosing to spend time engaged in a wonderful activity, so let’s provide a little recognition for that commitment and effort!




 
When keeping track of daily reading, please keep in mind the minutes logged should include all activities in which your child is working on reading: reading with someone; listening to someone read; and reading independently. Include time spent reading web-based programs and iPad applications as well. It’s not necessary to have a fixed schedule or predetermined number of minutes for daily reading. Most likely reading times will vary based on your family’s schedule. What’s most important is that your child continues to read every day!
 
The December reading log was placed in the back pocket of your child’s red home folder. Please feel free to keep it there until it is turned in at the end of the month. New monthly reading logs will be distributed at the beginning of every month.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions.
 
As always, I am so grateful for the continued support of our Highland Drive families!
