This 14 page, Common Core aligned Reading Response Packet is the perfect answer to keeping students focused and engaged when reading independently, in book partnerships or in book clubs. It can be used to complement any core reading program, Reader's Workshop or Literacy Centers. This packet could even be sent for at-home reading accountability for advanced or older students.
The Reading Response Packet includes text-dependent work focusing on visualizing, making connections between texts, characterization, setting, main idea, plot, making inferences, wondering and questioning, author's purpose, theme and using text evidence to support thinking.
The work pages are a great starting point for individual conferring with students or for pulling a strategies-based small group. The Sticky Note Tracker form can be inserted multiple times throughout the packet.Use my suggested Post-It Thinking Sheet for targeted work on these pages. All of the packet pages can be arranged in any order depending on the text being read.
This will be a great addition to your Independent Reading time!
