  • Interactive Reading Log for Secular Homeschoolers

    Weekly Homeschool Planner Template Page Free Interactive Reading Log

    There are certainly plenty of free printable reading logs out there, but one thing that seemed to be missing was a way to create reading goals for each student and track those goals. So, here at SHS, we've put together just that: an interactive reading log that lets you choose customized reading goals for each homeschooler and then when you update the spreadsheet with the date, book title, author, pages read, and time read, your goals are automatically updated for you!

    This interactive log is available in Google Drive (Google Sheets). To access and use it,  you simply need a free Google account and Google Drive.

    Below are instructions for opening and customizing your interactive reading log.



    Using the Interactive Reading Log in Google Drive

    Instruction one

    Click here to access the interactive reading log in Google Drive.




    Instruction two

    Go to File -> Make a Copy in the File Menu of the document. (Note, you MUST be logged into Google Drive before completing this step). Then, give a customized title to your version of the spreadsheet and open it in your own Google Drive to edit it.




    Instruction threeFirst, decide on your reading goals. For example, if you will be using the reading log as part of a summer project, then you might want to have your student's goal be to read 10 total books. Or, maybe you prefer to focus on the time your student reads. Maybe you want them to read for a total of Enter your reading goal500 minutes over the summer. Perhaps you want to focus simply on pages. If that's the case, maybe you want them to read a total of 1,000 pages during summer break. Decide on the goal you want your student to accomplish, and then, put that total goal in the corresponding yellow box. (Note: if you want to use this tool as a weekly tracker instead of for an overall project, simply make more copies of the spreadsheet and title them by the week's date.)



    Track your progress on the Log tab
    instruction four

    Once you have your goals entered on the "Goals" tab, it's time to head to the "Log" tab and start tracking your student's reading accomplishments.
     




    instruction five
    Updating goals info
    By adding information on the books or pages you've read into the log, the Goals tab will automatically update with your progress toward your goals!  







    And as a bonus, you don't have to worry about saving your work as you go. Google Drive uses auto-save so none of your efforts ever get accidentally deleted like they can in other programs. Woot!!
