Product Description
These 7 reading comprehension strategy journals are for your students to use as they read independently during your reading rotations or silent reading to practice their common core comprehension strategies of: Making Connections, Retelling, Visualizing, Questioning, Monitoring and Clarifying, Evaluating, and reading Nonfiction.

Each reading strategy journal has a cover with helpful graphics and sentence starters for think-pair-share, an explanation of the reading strategy in kid friendly terminology, and 1 or more student response sheets. The response sheets provide a simple graphic organizer for students to show their thinking as they engage with text. Directions are provided on assembling these journals for paper saving!

I teach each reading strategy explicitly for several weeks through read-alouds, think-alouds, shared readings, etc. using an anchor chart and student response sheets that we complete as a class. The reading strategy journal allows for the independent practice piece that is often missing during a reading center or silent reading.

My students are so motivated to work in their journals and feel accountable for their independent reading. These have been my most popular files to share with my teacher friends over the years and I hope they inspire you and your students to go deeper in working with these critical common core reading comprehension strategies.

Happy Reading! Jennifer Bruce
