Quarter 1 Reading Log
Part 1: During the first quarter, you must read three independent reading books.
You will be given some time in class to do independent reading but the majority of
your independent reading is out of class. I encourage you to read as many books
as you can, but you must read at least three this quarter. Out of the three
independent reading books, one must be a realistic fiction book. The other two can
be any genre of your choice. Record the genre, title, and author of each
independent reading book you read this quarter in the log.

The due date is Friday, October 7th.
Genre
Realistic
Fiction

Title

Author

Part 2: You will pick one book from your reading log and write a summary of it.
The summary must be a minimum of six sentences. Be sure to describe the main
character, the setting, and the plot.

Part 3: You will pick a different book and present a 2-3 minute book talk. A book
talk is when you present your book to the class similar to a summary. You will share
the genre, main character, setting, and a brief description of the plot. In a book
talk, you can also include your own opinion about the book and try to convince
your classmates to read this book.
Use this page to outline your book talk, and this will be returned to you to use
during your book talk. Book talks will take place the week of October 10th.
