I use this journal for responses to reading. You can use them in Literacy circles, Novel study, and reading groups.
-- a colorful front cover
--a back cover which has sentence starters.
-- different styles of response pages.
Mix and match as you desire. Just fold the front and back covers in half. Then copy each response page on front and back. Fill your journal with as many pages as you need. Fold them in half and put all the pages together. Staple down the middle.
