One of my favorite read-alouds with second graders is Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. This Power Point provides 5 colorful Reading Response Questions to use as a read-aloud companion piece. The response questions will spark great discussions about character development, personal connections,cultural changes throughout history, family life, seasons of the year, and life skills such as having a strong work ethic and being grateful for what we have. My students write their responses in Reading Response Journals (spiral notebooks). They love looking back at what we read throughout the year. If there's time I have them draw and color a picture to go with each response. Sometimes we follow up with an author chair reading. When grading I choose an outstanding response, color copy it and add it to our classroom display of "Bee-ootiful Reading Responses." Of course feel free to adapt this power point for your own personal, non-commercial use. Hope you and your students enjoy! Thank you for your purchase :)
