These reading response worksheets are designed for emerging and developing readers. There are 15 unique “Draw & Write” worksheet choices in two formats for differentiation (total of 30 worksheets, 15 choices in 2 formats). The first format has sentence starters printed on them, while the second format has traceable sentence starters. Every page has handwriting lines for writing the sentences on. There are also 7 blank “Draw & Write” worksheets with fun color-in borders to be used for undirected draw & write responses.
I recommend completing each worksheet with your student(s) first. Some of the worksheets can be completed independently early on, while others can be used to reinforce the teaching of new, more challenging concepts. As your student(s) develops stronger reading and writing skills throughout the school year, more of these reading response worksheets may be completed independently.
Emerging readers do lots of oral reading, discussions, and narrations! These worksheets are ideal for those students who are ready to do some “beginner writing” about the stories and books they read. They can serve as a bridge, or just make change of pace, from oral discussions/narrations to more in-depth written responses or narratives. They would also make a nice end-of-the-week culminating activity after a new story or book has been mastered.
Home Educators: These reading response worksheets would make a great addition to your homeschool portfolio for end-of-year assessment, or just for personal memory-keeping for this grade level! You could even create a keepsake booklet out of these to remember the stories read in a given school year.
Classroom Educators: These reading response worksheets are ideal for both small group and whole class instruction.
