Getting students to write and respond to what they're reading can be hard. I use this file and send it to a printer and they print it (80 pages as they copy more of the lined paper pages). I have them make 25 journals and make each set of 5 a different color. On Monday's I check the blue journals, on Tuesday's it's the yellow, etc. Students are responsible for writing one amazing journal entry a week. I also use the front part of this journal to have students log their reading minutes. We keep track of their weekly reading as well! Students have a section for ideas if they feel they don't know what to write and they also have a sample response to reference. Feel free to edit this to your needs!
