This Reading Response Journal Bundle is perfect for in-person, virtual learning, or hybrid learning.

These resources were created to help students improve their overall quality of responding to texts. The reading response question prompts are sorted by ideas to think about in the beginning, middle, & end of a text. Sorting the prompts this way helps students focus their thinking appropriately when reading.

Regularly writing reading responses also allows readers to show how they comprehend and interpret the text, as well as improve their writing and keyboarding skills.

PLEASE NOTE: The content and questions are the SAME in both resources. However, one is formatted for print and one is formatted as a digital journal using Google Slides.


Digital Version:

  • 45 Reading Response Journal Prompts Organized by prompts for the Beginning, Middle, & End of the book to help scaffold and facilitate higher quality responses.
  • How to Write a Reading Response Slide using RACE acronym
  • Sample color coded reading response slide
  • Blank sample reading response slide for creating your own sample response that goes with your current read aloud
  • Reading response checklist for teacher and/or students

Printable Version:

  • 45+ reading response prompts divided into appropriate groups for the beginning, middle, & end of a text (both full sheet handout & EDITABLE task card versions included)

  • RACE acronym poster designed to demonstrate how to write a thorough reading response (full sheet handout & half sheet for notebooks included)
