This is a response journal for the first book in the Magic Treehouse series called: Dinosaurs Before Dark. This book is at a guided reading level L so I will use the book in guided reading groups and have students use the response journal afterward either collaboratively with their group or individually. The journal contains 2 pages for every 1 or 2 chapters. They include 4-6 free response questions, 5 multiple choice and space for the students to draw their favorite part of the chapter(s). I have also given it to students who read independently at level L and they form a little book club with others who read it and they meet in groups to work on this response journal. It can also be used by individuals on their own.
