After my students have finished independent reading, I love to have them respond to what they read by writing a reader's response letter. I have found that this is great practice with how to write a letter, how to write paragraphs with a main idea and details, and how to write about what you have read. It is a sure way to make sure your kids are actually reading and understanding what they read!
