reading. Getting students to write about their reading can be fun and manageable for both students and teachers.
I have developed a year long homework calendar that you can use with your students to increase their writing about their reading. It includes a rubric, calendar for each month, 2 homework passes, place for parents to sign each night their child reads, as well as a place for you to score their response. At the bottom of each calendar is the response questions the students will answer. I use a composition notebook cut in half for the students to take home and record their responses. Each week I assign 2 questions. After January I assign 3 questions.
You can request the document so that you can edit the file for yourself. I am selling it as a pdf because of the special font I used as well as the layout. Please include your e-mail so I can e-mail you the file.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask :)
