KU Reading Log
The KU Reading Program begins in 3rd grade. All books read throughout the year should be recorded on the KU reading log sheet that will travel back and forth in the "Homework Folder" every Monday and Wednesday for your convenience and for your parents to help monitor.
You have the opportunity to receive an award at the end of the school year for your participation in this program. If
you read a total of 25 or more books throughout the year you will earn a
gold "seal" on your KU Reading certificate. If you read at least 12
books you will receive a silver seal. If you participate in
this program every year in grades 3rd through 6th you will receive a
special award at the end of your 6th grade year.
