In this file you get your choice of four different reading buddy response forms. I designed them with the everyday "FIVE" in mind, however, they can be used for reading any text whatsoever. There are two for fiction and two for non-fiction.
These are also useful for literacy centers or student book report projects. I think they are particularly effective in ESL, which is how I use them and helps kids to be accountable for their reading.
NEW: I added a core standards page, an ESL Insights page, and a page to differentiate for low readers who might have very limited English. I also added an independent writing as a response to reading page. Now there is a total of SIX pages for students to respond to their reading.
Core standards met by using this product:
Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or name the book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply a reason for the opinion, and provide some sense of closure.
Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.
Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply reasons that support the opinion, use linking words (e.g., because, and, also) to connect opinion and reasons, and provide a concluding statement or section.
Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons.
Provide reasons that support the opinion.
You will not receive the glitter pages . They are PPT thumbnails for presentation.
