FREEBIE! CELEBRATING a TPT MILESTONE! Reading Comprehension: Where? When? Why? (FREE until midnight 9/20/14) Six short stories on a half sheet - can be put into book format - variety of reading levels

Choose different reading logs to match what your students are reading at any given time! Six different logs including Venn Diagrams and T-charts. Prompts challenge kids to reflect about a variety of narrative elements! Not to mention that they are all so adorable...

My students have a different reading log question each night. They write about their favorite part of the story, the setting of the story, the main character of the story, and about an important event. This is such a fun way to have kids reading and thinking about story elements! I can definitely tell who is reading and who is not!
