Merit Question and Answer
Subsitution to Reading Logs for Educators


Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: Elementary School

Competency: At Level

Do you have an idea instead of reading logs? Our 5th graders just aren’t doing them and then it becomes a real pain in the butt for the teachers. Also they are just reading the back of the book and writing about that.



I think Book Punch can help you. It guides students through the writing process using interactive prompts to focus thinking about a particular book.

Students use Book Punch to gather ideas, organize their thoughts, compose sentences, revise, edit and publish responses to a work of literature.

All of the books covered in Book Punch are commonly read in schools today. Books may be assigned to a whole class or to each pupil’s individual reading level.
