Want to monitor the reading progress of your child or student? A reading log is the best tool you can use to do so. No matter if you’re a teacher or a parent, you can help record a young one’s reading time with the help of a user-friendly document. We have created five versions so you can choose the best one for your little reader. Pick yours below!
1. Daily Reading Log Template1. Daily Reading Log Template
If you aim to inspire your student, daughter or son to read on a daily basis, this is the log you’re looking for. Not only does it help see what books they finish reading, but also to see their progress with the amount of time they spend reading a specific number of pages. You can incorporate additional columns as necessary.
2. Weekly Reading Log Example2. Weekly Reading Log Example
This is the ideal reading tool to track weekly patterns. We recommend that you access the Word version and erase the examples from the fields. From there, you can print out the log and use a copy every week with handwritten content. On the other hand, you can fill it out digitally on a weekly basis.
3. Summer Reading Log Format3. Summer Reading Log Format
Want to keep your young one engaged in reading all summer? Use this easy log to record important data, from the book title and author, to the number of pages the book had. The start and end date columns are a neat way to track the overall reading time for each book. If you are a teacher, you can add a signature column at the end with the Microsoft Word format.
4. Reading Log with Summary Sample4. Reading Log with Summary Sample
If you want to make sure that all chapters of a book were not only read, but also understood, use this version with summaries. It contains a special field for summaries that correspond with each chapter of a book. Like with the other logs on this list, you can add or delete columns at your convenience.
5. 100 Book Challenge Reading Log Template5. 100 Book Challenge Reading Log Template
To wrap up our list of logs, here is the ultimate challenge for ambitious kids: 100 books. The document contains a table that spans three pages with all 100 entries. We have included a few examples of books to get you inspired, but you can enter any title you find relevant for your child or student’s age group.
In summary, there is a basic reading log format that can be modified for certain purposes. As you have noticed, the log appears in the form of a table, with columns relevant for the monitoring progress. We encourage you to pick your log according to frequency (daily, weekly, summer, etc.) or the number of books involved (i.e. 100 book challenge).
