Before purchasing, please answer the following questions:
1) Ever wonder how to improve your daily 5 reading rotation with an independent reading journal activity that can keep your students engaged and busy for the duration of the time?
2) Have multiple levels of learners to differentiate for (Inclusion classroom)?
3) Wish that you could give students a prompt, and they could write it in their journals independently (including those with special needs)?
4) Love giving handouts but wish they didn’t waste so much copy paper?
Look no further! This resource is designed to help students practice the skills of actively reading and responding to text from an early age. This resource is designed to give you at least 8 weeks of practice skills to help students become active readers.

*Two copies per page (for saving copies and easy prep! Just slice in half, and go!)
*Half sheets are convenient for students to complete and then glue into their journals as they finish.
*Differentiated levels (Start slow, and watch students graduate to the more complex forms)
***Teacher disclaimer: You should definitely model how you expect students to complete each form before you assign this. It is recommended to teach the particular skill during your mini-lesson, and use this in one of your teacher-led guided reading groups. Then students can practice independently during their independent reading rotation.
***Author’s Wish: I hope this gives you a great resource to help students become more independent, active readers, and help you differentiate their needs all in one! Enjoy the product, and please leave feedback to get your credit points!
