The Read and Respond homework includes Mon.-Fri. and then one day of reading for Sat./Sun. so students get one day off a week from reading.
This is what the directions say, but you can change them to fit your preferences. "Homework: Read at least 30 minutes each day from a chapter book or classroom hand out. Then, write the main idea and 3 details using complete sentences. This is due the following Monday. Happy Reading!"
I hand it out Monday and collect it the following Monday.
