This Read and Respond Prompt will help your students develop reading comprehension, literary response & analysis and writing skills. Each day, your students will answer one Read and Respond question related to their choice reading book (or an assigned book if you prefer). I highly recommend implementing this prompt along with choice reading as it cultivates a love for reading in and beyond the classroom.

For a more thorough explanation of how you can incorporate Read and Respond prompts into your classroom curriculum, feel free to read my blog post, Read and Respond Journals.

Included in this zipped freebie file are the following:
- Central Message Printable Stickers
- Central Message Tip Sheet Printable
- Central Message Instructional Posters
- Read and Respond Rubric
