What educators are saying

These are great options for students to share their thinking on their text & it is an engaging way for me to also hold them accountable.
Thank you for this resource! Engaging way for students to show off what they are independently reading. I use this during Reader's Workshop weekly.


Make implementing a reading response journal easy with these reading comprehension notebook graphic organizers, menu choices, and optional homework sheets! This reading response journal resource includes 9 monthly reading menus, activities, and choice boards to use as reading response sheets.

Each reading response menu includes:

  • Six reading response activities (54 total in this resource!)
  • Non-fiction & fiction options
  • Matching graphic organizers for response activities
  • Optional menu without the monthly label (great to use any month!)

This resource comes in both printable and digital (Google Slides) formats, so whether you're in the classroom or teaching remotely, I've got you covered!

These reading response menus are also perfect to use during your daily literacy block. They can be used during independent centers or as a response activity after a whole group lesson. If you want to fit these in reading notebooks, print the pages at 85% and they'll fit right in there!
