Reading Response Collaborative Activity - Primary Grades
This primary grades resource is a collaborative reading response activity for small groups in your classroom. Each page contains a reader response question (that will work with a variety of texts), learning goal related to the question, spaces for students’ individual answers on sticky notes, a space for them to collaboratively build their best answer using the individual responses, and success criteria for reader responses.
This activity works with read alouds, whole group lessons, shared reading activities, guided reading lessons, content area reading … basically any activity where the whole class or groups of students are reading the same text.
There are 54 different reader response questions included in this resource, covering a huge variety of comprehension strategies, story elements, and questions specific to informational text. There are 3 different questions for each of the following: Comprehension Strategies
(Asking Questions, Determining Importance, Inferring, Making Connections, Monitoring Comprehension, Predicting, Summarizing, Synthesizing, Visualizing), Story Elements
(Plot, Setting, Characters, Problem/Solution, Point of View), Informational Text
(Text Features, Main Idea and Details, Vocabulary, Compare and Contrast). There is also a blank page for you to add your own question. Each main section in the Table of Contents is hyperlinked for easy printing of the pages you require.
Levelled exemplars (Levels 1 - 4) and a rubric are also included.
This resource has now been updated to include an editable template (in powerpoint) so you can type in your own questions. The success criteria checklist is still included, but you can add your own question and learning goal.
