Literature Response Sheets
These sheets are designed to use with any piece of literature. The sheets are divided into three response logs.
These sheets are no-prep! All you have to do is to pick the format that works best for your students, then print and go OR load onto Google Classroom and go!
You have three options!
1) The half-page sheets ~ These are designed to be stapled or clipped together and then kept inside the book being read. If you choose to give your students the sheets for all three sections at one time, you may need to use a binder clip to fasten the sheets together. Stapling the sheets is perfect if you decide to provide one log at a time.
2) The full-page sheets ~These are for use in a composition notebook. This option creates an on-going response journal for your students.
3) The digital sheets for Google Classroom~ Go paperless and use these sheets in Google slides!
