      Reading Log and Book Levels

      You are required to keep a reading log for the books you read in and out of school. Your list should be kept up to date in your Reader's Notebok and then entered into your book list database. Books are entered when you finish them. A fifth grade reader should read 35 - 45, at grade level books. Someone reading below grade level should read more books because the books are shorter in length.
