When thinking about my literacy/reader's workshop centers this year, I wanted to find an organized way for my students to write about their reading and thinking while they were reading. For the first few weeks I tried responses using sentence starters on notebook paper, but that quickly got messy!
I use this organizer each week. During centers students must write three responses to their reading throughout the week. This can also be used as homework. They keep it all week and turn it in on Friday. They keep it in their reader's workshop binder.
