Reading Log

In Kindergarten we ask all parents to read with their child for 20 minutes, 5 nights a week. We used to have parents list out the date, what books they read, and how long they read for. To make it easier for the parents and for me this year, I decided to create a Calendar-style reading log, where parents have to fill out what they read/how long on an actual calendar so they can visually see which days they read/did not read with their child and if they met the goal of 5 nights a week. I think it will also be a great visual for the kiddos to see as well. Spacing was a little tight so there wasn't room to make it cute!

This explanation will go in front of the whole packet. I have also included a blank reading log instruction sheet incase you have different reading goals.

This is what each month looks like. This reading log calendar goes to the end of May.
You can get the .pdf version here
and the Word version here.

Oh no! When I try to open the word document it no longer is formatted correctly. I have tried opening the document on both a mac and a PC. I am not sure if anyone else has experienced this same issue or if the problem is on my end. I would LOVE a copy of this wonderful reading log! Wonderful idea and a wonderful blog! :)
