This reading journal is perfect to help your students really interact with the books they are reading.
I use these during my students' independent reading center. I just print these out back to back and have my 2nd graders fold them in half. Super easy and quick!
Students will write down predictions, confusing things, something interesting they noticed while reading, questions they still have, words they didn't know, and their favorite part.
Sometimes, I would have students read the same book and fill these out during independent reading. The next day, they would meet as a book club to discuss all of their thoughts about the book.
I loved seeing their growth and seeing them share ideas, questions, and predictions.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
