***NOW INCLUDES TWO VERSIONS: WITH AND WITHOUT DAYS OF THE WEEK ON EACH SHEET! ***
I created this NO PREP Differentiated Daily Reading Responses pack because although I teach second grade, every year I have students reading on a wide range of levels (sometimes K-3rd grade levels). To meet my students’ needs, I provide them with books at their reading level. I also have students self-select books from our take-home leveled library. If we are going to differentiate for students by providing them with books on their individual reading level, we also need to provide them with follow-up activities to help them interact and engage with that text. These tasks should be appropriate for what they can do independently.
Enter my Differentiated Daily Reading Responses!
Students complete a different task each day using the same book. This offers students several opportunities to interact with the text, each day with a different purpose/focus. My students complete one section for homework each night. As students read the same book each night, they’re improving their fluency and comprehension. Sending these Differentiated Daily Reading Responses for homework is the solution to making students accountable for reading at home! The tasks increase in difficulty as students’ levels increase. Students are excited when they move up a level and receive a new reading response sheet!
