Have your students write a letter to you once a week about what they are reading about during Daily 5 (Independent Reading). This tool sets the framework for students to share openly about they enjoy or dislike when reading their novel. You can respond back to your students and have an authentic conversation about reading. Included in this resource is a letter template explaining the assignment, sentence leads for students to refer to, and a reading log. Enjoy! This was previously used in a 5th grade classroom.
