Students have 9 choices for reflection after completing independent reading including plot and character analysis, figurative language interpretation, theme, setting, and connections. I have students complete their reflections in journals, but have also included a separate sheet that might be handy for a weekly homework reflection journal. Students' goal is to complete a winning tic tac toe pattern by the end of our five day rotation. Hope this can be of use in your classroom!

If choice boards are appealing to you and your kids, you may also be interested in Reading Comprehension: Choice Boards (Tic-Tac-Toe), Discussions Cards, & Plans, which introduces metacognitive reading strategies in five weeks using choice boards and discussion cards.
