Spice up reading responses by incorporating reading response fandexes into reading workshop. A fandex is like it sounds...a book that fans out, much like the Brain Quest cards you fan out.
This product includes 46 template pages to create class wide or individual fandex books focused on the books they are reading! Students absolutely love making these! Cut fandex pages out, fasten in the bottom left hand corner, and voila, you have a fandex waiting for students' smart thinking to be recorded! They are a great way to motivate students to think more deeply and write about their reading.
There are 2 fandex pages on one printable 8 x 11.5 page
There are 6 blank fandex templates for you to customize for any activity or topic for individual or class books (expand to science, math etc...)
