Have you ever wondered what you should include in a student's Reading Journal to promote deeper thinking? This is a kit, aligned to the 5th grade Common Core Standards, that contains several pieces, including a record for keeping track of books read, a place to record genres and take notes on books/authors a child may want to read in the future, a place to record interesting words found, a place to record reading responses, and an assessment guide/rubric. It can be used with independent reading, guided reading, or literature circles!
You will simply need some notebook paper and a pocket folder with prongs to assemble the journals.
The kit is in a zip file with 6 Word documents that you can customize for your own students.
