Hello students! Please follow the link below to the reading log that we will be using this year. Please do the following:
1. Make a copy of the document
2. Rename the document with a title including your name, such as “Jesper Parnavek’s Reading Log”.
3. Fill in one reading habit you will employ and two reading goals.
4. Place the document in your Reading folder and share it with me.
Remember that this log must be updated every day. The total number of books read is not of utmost importance. The crucial element is that you must read every day for at least thirty minutes. Good readers keep records and track their progress!
