There are so many ways to use these 64 Reading Response Cards! Here are some suggestions:
-Use as writing prompts for reading journals.
-Require students to complete a certain number of cards each week for their independent reading.
-Use in guided reading groups and literature circles as discussion prompts.
-Use as prompts for partner discussions.
-Use reading strategy and literacy centers.
-Choose one card to display on the document camera for the whole class to use as a writing prompt.
-Allow students to draw cards randomly as writing or discussion prompts (always very popular!)
-Use after silent reading or the weekend to discuss what students have been reading independently.
Many of these cards would work well for close reading. Common Core Standards addressed in this product are written out by grade level grades 3-8 for easy reference. In addition, the questions are also in list format at the end of the document.
To use, simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again! Although they will look best in color, these cards will also print out fine in grayscale.
I have also created similar cards for informational text (nonfiction) which you can find right here.
Task Cards for a variety of topics can be found in the Task Card section of my TpT store.
