I've always given my students reading records with no real knowledge if they actually read or understood what they read.
So I have created now a variety of -SIX- K-1 WEEKLY FICTION READING RECORDS with 5 days of comprehension activities for each week. All questions can be used with any fiction book. I have also created a page for the K-1 version about how to use it and introduce it with parents as well as an editable parent letter that helps explain the role of the parents in helping their child with their Weekly Reading Records.
Each question is CCSS related and based on a comprehension reading strategy. Here are a few examples of questions asked on the reading records:
-Retell your story in your own words and draw a picture of your favorite part
-The characters in the story is like me because…
-The characters in the story is different from me because…
-Write three events in the order (sequence) that they happened in your story.
-Do the characters in this story get along with each other?
-Draw a picture of something the characters would do together?
-What was the problem in your story?
-Where is the setting (place) the story takes place in?
-Draw a picture of how you imagine this setting to look.
Those are some samples yet the level of complexity varies so some are easier while some are more thought provoking.
I created these and used to use them solely for home reading homework, BUT..... I began to find many more uses for them. Now I use them for many things IN THE CLASSROOM as well..... including: Daily 5, close reading questions, formative assessments, guided reading groups, parent or paraprofessional pull out groups, silent reading responses, and SO MUCH MORE!
So to use them in the classroom and at home, I created a parent signature and minutes read option as well as one with not a place for parent signatures for classroom use. Well....these weeks were all on one side of paper...as at our school teachers have to pay for their own paper BUT decided to create another version that used two pages for one week that I just copy back to back and it gives the students that need it, more room to write their responses and can have a bit bigger font. So I made two versions (one with and one without) parent signature options exactly like the one page versions. THAT MAKES A TOTAL OF 4 VERSIONS TO CHOOSE FROM of the same 6 full weeks with 5 days of questions on each week.
I have also included a rubric for your convenience.
These have been SO popular that I have created a variety of different variations of reading records....which you can find below if interested.
Please check out the preview and don't hesitate to ask any question whatsoever.....I'm happy to help in any way I can. If you would like to see something added or tweaked on these, please feel free to email me and if I can do it....I will add it or change it for you. I hope you enjoy this. I have worked extremely hard to make it very user friendly, with lots of varieties for different learners, educational, CCSS correlated, varied in complexity, etc.... I hope your kiddos learn as much as mine have and enjoy this more than the basic reading record. Enjoy!
PS.....I'm starting the NonFiction Version right after loading this!
