This reading journal is easy to put together and can be used with ANY chapter book. Students will be asked to connect to text and think deeper about their reading. It keeps them on track with reading goals in the classroom, helps them connect to their chapter book, and helps the teacher make sure they are actually reading during silent reading or at home.
Here are skills that your students will work on with this product:
Text to Self Connection
Text to Text Connection
Ask a character a question
Ask the author a question
Having students keep a journal is a great way to hold your kids accountable while they are reading independently. There is a section on each page to record the page they started on and stopped while reading. The journal is separated into 26 half pages so your students can read and then use one half page each day.
Ideas for use: during "Read to Partner," silent reading time, during reading groups, or send home to help parents when they read with their kids at home.
These journals are perfect for any student reading a chapter book!
Thanks so much for viewing this product. I hope you can find it useful in your classroom!
