Reading Logs, Vocabulary Lists, and Spelling Practice

Reading Logs is a site that allows teachers and students to create reading logs, vocabulary cards, and practice spelling skills. Parents can also access Reading Logs to check on their students' progress. It appears that there is also a platform for school librarians in development, but it did not appear to be functioning when I visited the site.

Teachers can upload reading goals, vocabulary lists, and spelling words for students to practice. After their teacher has uploaded the goals and lists students can log-in to reading assignments and practice vocabulary words. To practice spelling words, students can use the Listen & Spell practice system which reads each word aloud. Students can submit completed assignments online or print out their completed assignments. Teachers and parents can track the progress of their students.

Applications for Education
Reading Logs could be a good system for reading teachers and parents to monitor the progress of their students.
