12 months of themed reading logs, 30 days each, 223 pages total, grades 3-6
Assign the reading response packets monthly to students throughout the school year as an engaging way to respond to text that is read independently. Its design requires students to read a variety of text, in fiction and nonfiction, over a 30-day period. The packet has the same format each month, however, the themes change for each of the 12 months. Just print each month! No preparation needed!
Students are asked to respond authentically to what they read through prompts that target a variety of literacy skills, including: making connections, analyzing story elements, vocabulary development, summarizing, making predictions, deciphering figurative language, comparing and contrasting information and story elements, recognizing cause and effect relationships, sequencing information in the form of time lines and graphic organizers, and researching.
The reading response prompts are organized in the 30-day packet as a daily tasks. There is one prompt per day. Some prompts can be used for both fiction and nonfiction text, and some are more specific to one genre. Most of the prompts are repeated two times within the 30-day packet, with the exception of the two different story elements prompts. Those are each only listed once, in order to break apart the skill and have students focus on setting and problem/solution separately. The prompts are coded so that students know which type of text they should be using with each prompt.
