Every educator knows how vital it is for students to be reading daily. Daily reading boosts fluency, builds vocabulary, and increases comprehension. Good readers think about what they read and the Read and Respond Daily Journal allows students to quickly and thoughtfully respond to what they are reading. Students use thought-provoking prompts to help them analyze what they read for deeper understanding. Read and Respond goes beyond traditional summarizing, although summarization is embedded into the response.

In this booklet you will get . . .
* Teacher directions and suggestions for use
* Student directions for students to paste in their journal - this includes student prompts for both fiction and nonfiction reading
* Scoring guide for students to paste in their journal
* Parent Contract
* Example entries for students to score
* Reading goal page
* Genre tracking form
* Read and Respond Passes (for use as incentive/prize in your classroom)

I have been using Read and Respond with my students since I started teaching over 10 years ago and have tweaked it every year. This is an updated version. If you purchased the previous version it is still included in the download.
