Product Description

Holding students accountable for their independent reading can be challenging. This resources allows you to gather the information you need to truly know whether students are keeping up with their reading goals.

This print and go resource contains enough materials to compose an entire section of your students' binders! Included are 42 prompts (designed to be used on a weekly basis) that are applicable to any work of fiction. Students can choose prompts that apply to where they are in their books (before reading, during reading, and after reading). Assign one day a week that you will check or collect your students' responses.This is a great way to either informally or formally assess your students' comprehension of their novels, and ensure that they are reading on a daily basis. They will also benefit from writing on a repeated and regular basis.

If you prefer that your students use notebooks, I have also included an alternate version of the prompts that are meant to be glued on the heading of a notebook page.

The file also includes a numbering system and a question bank to create your own file folder system! See photos of this in the preview!

Teachers Say....

"Prior to finding this activity, I had a monthly book reflection students would complete. In order to keep student accountability high, I went in search of a new system and found this. Student accountability has increased and students are still reading the books they want to read. I highly suggest this!"

"LOVE this resource! I originally got it because a book we were studying in our homeschool didn't have an accompanying unit study that I could find. This was so much better! I love the deep-thinking questions and the variety of ways to look at a book and its many sub-stories. This really helps students know a book better and look for elements they wouldn't normally notice!"

"I was really looking for ways to hold students accountable for their reading without reading logs. This was really helpful this year. Thanks!"
