This reading response activity can be used to help students think about character change and the cause of it. I used this activity to introduce the concept of text evidence and "cause and effect" after a whole class read aloud of Because of Winn Dixie by Katie Di Camillo. Students enjoyed the foldable flaps and interactive nature of the activity. We then glued it into our interactive reading notebooks.
This can also be easily and effectively used as a reading response in a guided reading group, independent reading, or as a homework assignment! Very flexible and easy to use, but targets many reading strategies and common core skills of giving text evidence.
