At Home Reading Logs & Parent Letter


My preschoolers ASK for homework. They want to be just like their big brother or sister and do homework. They have also figured out that when their brothers or sisters do homework they get extra one on one time with mom or dad. Preschoolers need that learning time too at home with mom and dad! For homework, each month I send home a Monthly Home Readings Log and they kids LOVE it! Each time a child "reads" or has a book read to them at home, they color an object on the reading log.  Once they have colored all the objects for that month they can bring it back to school to show the class (if you wish). We do a cheer for the student at our morning meeting if they bring it back to school.  It will be simple, quick, and recognizes the student for reading at home!  I tape the reading logs to their cubby and make a big deal about them each month. Reading logs are the perfect homework for busy families and my little learners!

The monthly reading logs do not include dates so you can use them year after year!  Just print, copy, and send home! Print them on bright paper to make them stand out.

Reading at home can make BIG impact in a child's school success!  For a preschooler or kindergartner just reading 10-15 can make an impact in their reading comprehension, vocabulary, fluency, sense of story, phonemic awareness, and writing!

The first month I send the reading logs home, I  attach the “Reading at Home” 2 PAGE parent note.  The parent letter has reading and comprehension strategies, strategies to help their child develop as a reader, tips for making a home reading nook, a list of ways to make reading an adventure, and a list of media they can read other than books!

  2. Yeah monthly reading logs are a good idea. Now, my cousin’s son who is into a Phoenix pre-k also get something similar. At first, she found is quite annoying and when she realized its importance, she liked this concept too.
