PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As students become more independent as readers, it can be difficult for teachers to monitor each book they read. We want their books to be at a level where they can grow as readers, but at the same time not be too easy or too challenging. The following tools will help students self-monitor their reading choices and guide them to choose books that will stretch them as readers. This is much more meaningful than the 5 finger rule! It teaches students to think about their reading fluency, comprehension, reading rate, etc. in a meaningful way.

At the beginning of the year, when you are talking about choosing books, discuss the rubric and have students place it in their interactive reading journals. This can used for the activities and revisited as needed.

This file includes:
Explanation of activities
Academic vocabulary and discussion points
Student rubric for interactive reading journal (2 per page)
3 follow-up activities:
Reflecting on My Independent Reading Book
Evaluating a New Independent Reading Book
Evaluating Independent Reading Books
