Reading Response Notebooks are a great way to see how students are thinking, but they make grading a trick! These user-friendly rubrics make it easier to assign grades to your students notebook entries.
The first rubric grades notes that students write daily about their reading. The next three rubrics build upon each other as students write more in-depth entries about books they have finished. The expectations for these entries are aligned to the ELA Common Core Standards for fourth grade.
The fifth rubric gives you an option to determine an end-of quarter grade for the entries in the notebook.
All rubrics are set up on a letter grade evaluation. You can assign the point value that works for you. Also included are checklists for easy record-keeping and scaffolded response sheets for students who need additional support organizing their responses.
