I like the idea of a reading notebook, however I don't like that at my child's school, it's left there all year and the parents have no idea how the child is doing till the end of the year. If you want parents to be the child's primary educator, you need to involve them as well. Finally my child's teacher started sending home the drafts however we still only received these once a quarter. How can notebooks be used for the teacher's benefit as well as the students and parents throughout the year?
