Getting students to talk and write about their reading is extremely important. It lets the teacher know what the student is thinking and processing in their head during and after reading. It is also a great practice for comprehension.
The Read and Respond notebook aims to help get students talking about their reading using standards based prompts. Each month students have a variety of responses to choose from and write about based on their books they read. This writing is quick and could be done in your writing center!
