Whether you are well into the school year or are enjoying a relaxed summertime schedule, reading logs are undoubtedly an excellent way for your child or student to keep track of their book-reading goals.
During the school year, children (in both elementary and middle school) are encouraged – or even required – to read as much as possible and are usually given a target number of minutes or pages to read every day. If you are an educator, homeschooler, or are a parent who simply wants their child to excel in reading, printing out a reading log for them to keep track of their minutes is the perfect way to ensure they are reading an appropriate minimum amount. Tracking progress also allows the child to see how well they are doing which will encourage them to read even more!
If the school year has ended and you’re already into summertime mode it doesn’t mean that reading is less important or unneeded – with all that extra time on their hands it is actually a perfect opportunity to have your child check out some books from the local library (more book trackers here!) and dive in! Reading year-round will help them maintain all the progress they’ve made during the previous school year in terms of reading and comprehension, plus it’s a great boredom buster – who doesn’t love getting lost in a great book!?
