**We just finished revising this file!! We uploaded the revised Reader's Notebook and Binder on July 25, 2012!! Thank you!!**
A perfect addition to reading workshop! Students are engaged with their reading notebook and reading binder during independent reading time. There are two components to this file- My Reading Binder and My Reader's Notebook.
Student Reading binder and notebook:
-TONS of pictures for how to use the binder and notebook in your classroom
-Cover pages (several options are included: a black/white option and also a color “boy” and color “girl” option)
- Table of contents (for if you use tabs or folders for your notebooks)
- Do’s and don’ts reminder
- Reader’s mini-lessons recording sheet
- Reading goals recording sheet
- Reading log/reflections recording sheet
-Reading genre reference

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Does the Readers Notebook and Binder come with the reading response letter format? I noticed that you said you use the basal story one week and then thier independent novels the other weeks. This sounds like a great idea and I would love to see how to do it!
Thank you for your interest in our files! Yes, the Reader's Notebook has information about reading response letters. You are correct- I use the basal story just one day a week. My students write a reading response letter one day a week, about the basal story.
I hope that helps!!
A lot of people have the same questions about how this is different than RRW (including myself). Instead of emailing an answer, would it be possible to post on here? I'm considering buying 1 (possibly more), but want to know the answer to this before I do.
Thanks so much! Looking forward to using your materials. :)
Thanks so much for your message. We are happy to help! Rockin' Reading Workshop focuses on using a reading workshop approach to teach your students to be independent readers. This is a teacher resource guide and helps you with getting reading workshop established in your classroom and teaching effective mini-lesssons. The Reader's Notebook is more of a resource for students, not the teacher. The notebook is geared towards independent readers who are capable of organizing their reading materials in a notebook and binder. My students use the notebook instead of literacy centers during their independent reading time. It has examples, pictures, and resources for reading response letters, mini-lessons, and the categories for the binder.
I hope that this helps! Please let me know if I can clarify this in any more detail.
I know others have asked this, but I couldn't find a clear answer. I already own your Rockin Reading Workshop but I'm unclear if the materials of this file are included in the RRW? Trying to set up student RW notebooks :) Thank you so much for all your great work! I'm teaching 3rd grade this year (from 1st) and all of your materials have been so helpful. Thanks again! Kristin
Thank you so much for visiting our TpT store and taking the time to ask a question. No, the Reader's Notebook is not part of the Rockin' Reading Workshop. We revised the Reader's Notebook over the summer and it has a lot of graphics/clipart and pictures- too large to put together. I also teach third grade. I think you (and your kiddos!) will love the reader's notebooks!!!!
Thank you for your kind words!
Thank you for visiting our TpT store! I think this might be too advanced for first graders! Sorry!!

I'm a little confused. I've just purchased the Rockin Readers download, but several posts are indicating that the student binder is included with it. However, I don't see it in my Rockin Readers download files. Before I purchase the student binder download, I want to make sure it's not a duplicate purchase. Can you please clarify this for me. I love your products and can't wait to use them this year!
Is this Janet? Did you send us an email? If so, I just emailed you back!!!

Is this also included in your Rockin Reading Workshop or is it different? I did not see some of the same things in my copy of Rockin Reading Workshop update that I saw on the preview of this. Thanks, Kelly
Hello! Thank you for your purchase! There are some technical difficulties that are going on with the entire TpT store right now. We just uploaded this this file on the site yesterday...but now it disappeared! We have tried to view this file in our TpT store on several different computers...and we still can not access it! :( I am not sure what is going on, but we are happy to help you in any way that we can. You can leave us your email address here on this page or you can email us at: email@example.com
So sorry about that!!!! Thank you for your patience!
Sorry, I started to purchase that product also. In the near future, I will read what is inside of the packages. I think I am too excited about your products. I am addicted to tpt. You have outstanding ideas and I want all of them. I have purchased over 200 products within the last 2 months. :( As you can see, I am in serious need of therapy. :)
Thank you for helping me work smarter not harder. I promise to READ what is inside of your packets so that this will not happen again. It is a good thing we return to work on Monday. :)
