his own non-linear way, which does not lend itself to completing a summer reading form. And ultimately I don't mind that he rejected the programs; I am happy that he reads because he enjoys it, not in order to win a prize.
So, because I like making lists and keeping records, in May I started a log of N.'s daily reading (pictured at left) to replace the summer reading forms. N. always reads for 30-60 minutes in bed before breakfast, so his reading has been easy to track. While I record our read-aloud chapter books at Listography, I thought pen and notebook would be the easiest format for a daily silent-reading log. There are no prizes, but it pleases me to be able to look over the log and see all the reading N. does.
