Read-O-Meter Form

I use this form in the classroom to keep track of the number of minutes student spend reading for the Pizza Hut Book It program.

This form is customizable. Simply write your student’s names in the space provided. Color in the appropriate number of squares per 15 minutes of reading. Start at the bottom just like a real thermometer would. When the student has read 300 minutes (or whatever the goal is), its pizza time!

For example, if a student read for 30 minutes for the entire week, then color in 2 squares only. If read for 60 minutes, then color from the bottom up to the square with the number “60” in it.

Posting this form on a wall helps students know exactly how many minutes they have currently read. Update weekly.
