Fun Reading Log on a Metal Ring

reading ring

 

* When I taught 3rd grade I was always trying to come up with a fun way for my students to keep track of what they read.  I also encouraged them to read a variety of genres.  I came up with this idea of making genre strips that they would fill out and put on a metal ring. They loved them.  The directions below are how I used them, but you can adjust the directions to fit your needs.

 

Directions:

1.  Cut strips in a variety of colors on card stock.

 

2.  Members can print pre-made strips

 

3.  Each color strip represents a genre.   Group the strips by genre and place them in a container. (Included are Fiction and Non-Fiction/Informational dividers.)

 

4.  When students finish reading a book, they may pick the appropriate reading log strip and fill in the information on the front side of the strip.

 

5.  Students then turn the strip over and write a sentence or two about their favorite part of the book. (Younger students could draw a picture)

 

6.  When completed,  students can punch the hole and add their strip to their metal ring.

 

7.  Periodically, have a student share session.  Students share one of their books from their ring.  Each student can ask one question about the book.
