Reading is a good habit to inculcate in young children as early as first grade where they are able to read simple words by themselves. Prior to that, young readers can be encouraged to read by parents who spend time reading to them first.
Once the love for reading is established through the hearing of stories read to them, the young readers will automatically reach out for books to read on their own. Their knowledge and creativity skills will be expanded as they develop a love for reading.
A reading society develops into an advanced civilization; hence, young readers as early as first graders.
A first grade reading log would make a helpful tool for the children and adults in tracking the first grader’s reading habits and progress. The reading log can record the number of books he has read, was read to, read with parental assistance, and the types of books read with completion dates.
A first grade reading log template may record the following information:
* Child’s name
* Reading days
* Reading times
* Type of books
* Book title
* Parent’s / Teacher’s Acknowledgement
The first grade reading log must be a project implemented by the parent or teacher as the child is a bit young to proceed with the task on his own at the moment. With consistency, the young child picks up a good habit and it stays with him for life.
