I created the following reading log and reading strategies guide for my 5th grade students to use for their evening reading assignments. Feel free to download and use with your own class. Click on the image to download via Dropbox.
Student Reading Strategies Form
Student Reading Log
Students circle one of the three strategies in the final box. If they choose visualization, they draw a picture in the box, along with a short response.
Have your students write the page range they are assigned to read ahead of time. They will fill in the # of minutes it took them to read that section in the “# min” field. I included this field to monitor student reading rate.
The reading strategies form I created was adapted from Mendhamboro.org for use in my classroom.
