Do you BOOK-IT???

Hey there!  I feel like it's been a while!  I guess that's what happens when your camera battery dies and you can't find your charger!  I finally picked up a new one over the weekend, so I can take pictures and upload them to my computer again!  Yay!

It's so hard to believe that next week is October already!  One of the things that starts up for me in October is Book-It.  I used to set my students' reading goal as a certain number of minutes each month, but I happily changed my plan last year when my teaching partner suggested that the goal be a number of books read per month instead.  Can I tell you how much time I wasted totaling minutes read at the end of each month???  Seriously.  This is way better.

Since I switched so last-minute last year, I ended up using some old monthly reading logs that we had on hand.  
This is the one for October.

I'm not sure who made them or where they originally came from, and I'm sure they were made with loads of love back in the day so I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I just could not bring myself to copy these off and use them again this year.  It's like a slap in the face to cute fonts and clip art everywhere.

So I whipped up a new sheet and in case you are still looking for something to use for Book-It, I'd love to share it with you.  I bumped the goal up from 20 to 25 books read.  As the year goes on, that goal will increase.

I copied the pages back to back on bright orange paper and will send them home next week Tuesday, the first day of October.

Happy reading {and pizza eating} to all Book-It students!!


  1. Thanks so much for this. I am NOT loving the book-it forms from Pizza Hut this year, but this is just perfect!

    1. You're welcome! Glad you found these! I just sent this one home with my students today for October! You can find them for each month on the blog under the "Book It" label on the right hand side. :)
