There a various options when creating a reading log sheet, including sheets that record daily reading habits, books read according to genre or logs that keep track of books read throughout the year. There are also more innovative reading worksheets that can be set up as games or log wheels.
Daily reading worksheets help the student keep track of the name of books read, the names of authors and the amount of time spent reading each day. Other reading worksheets record the date each book was completed and the amount of time it took to complete the book. These worksheets can be customized according to the students' needs by adding space for a student to rate the book or for a parent to sign to confirm the reading for the day has been completed. A 12-month reading log allows students to keep a record of each book read throughout the year, with optional spaces made available for brief written commentaries on each book.
To help students become engaged in keeping a proper record in the worksheets, they can also be set up as games such as tic-tac-toe, with colors assigned to specific genres such as fiction, nonfiction and history. The student fills in the colors in the tic-tac-toe box and wins when he has filled three in a row of the same color.
