Reader's Response Journals are a great way to build comprehension after listening to a story. This unit contains response forms that can be used during whole group, small group, or in listening stations. There are three levels of each type of response form for differentiated instruction, higher order thinking, and multiple grade levels. These pages can be assembled into a journal that can be used after students listen to a story in the listening station or they can be used individually to accompany comprehension lessons.
