Here are some of my finds:
FREE Reading Logs:
Reading Logs are important because you can track how much is being read and set obtainable goals. I like to pick a reward and write it in big, bold colors at the top of the log so they are reminded of what they will receive if they complete it. You may not need to do this with kids that love to read, but I have found that it is a good incentive for struggling readers that need more practice.
