You asked if students are reading a different book each day to complete the mini-lesson task or if they are reading a chapter book over time. That is hard to answer because it is different for every reader.
My higher readers are reading chapter books the majority of the time, while some of my lower readers may still be choosing picture books at their level. By this time of the year, most of my students are usually reading a chapter book over a longer period of time. However, the recording sheet that you see in my post is from the beginning of the school year. During the first month, I ask my third graders to read only fiction picture books so that they can become comfortable recording many books in their reading log and determining each book's genre.
