Are you looking for a way to encourage your students to read at home? These Monthly Reading Logs can be used as a way to motivate children to read independently and track the number of books or minutes that they read every month.
There are two sets of reading logs. The first set say, "Every time you read a book, color a (symbol)!" After a child reads a book independently or listens to a story read aloud, he or she colors in one symbol. On each chart, there are enough symbols for every night. (January = 31, February = 28, etc.) You can have a child read one book a night or have him or her read as many books as he or she wants to and color a symbol for each book.
The second set of reading logs say, "Every time you read for ____ minutes, color in a (symbol)!" You can fill in how many minutes you want your students to read every night.
The symbols for the months include:
January = mittens
February = hearts
March = shamrocks
April = eggs
May = kites
June = suns
July = stars
August = glue bottles
September = acorns
October = pumpkins
November = pies
December = ornaments or snowflakes (2 different reading logs for December)
