The Reading Record Book, or Why I spent 3 hours at school yesterday on a day off
Of course, since my little darlings are not always the most self-motivated, I will have to throw some incentives in here...first, I'm going to collect the books monthly and give a simple grade based on writing a goal, recording reading, and correctly making a graph. Then, I'm going to have to give some kind of prize/reward for meeting the monthly goals. What it will be, I don't know yet, but it better be good to motivate some of my reluctant readers! (or my LAZY little students...yes, I said lazy. but it's true, if you are not even willing to write down the titles of books you read, I have no sympathy!)
I am really proud of how the books turned out and have high hopes for them. I'm sure they will need to be tweaked further, but we'll see how they go!
