It almost made me more sad than the parents who didn't write at all. At least those kids can make excuses to themselves about why it didn't get done. For this kid it just screams "I don't know my son and didn't even take the time to try to find something important to write about."

You handed it out and gave them a due date. It was probably assumed that it was for a grade.
You are punishing the student for someone Else's actions. That is NOT OK.
And reading to a 13 year old? Please, like she would even want me too! I was supposed to sign a paper saying SHE read a book to HERSELF. Not that I read it to her. She has a 12th grade reading level. She reads all the time. I am not concerned about her reading habits. Those reading logs irritate me.
