Increase the time students spend actually reading and writing!
These rigorous, differentiated, prompted reading responses will train your students to write strong, well-supported paragraphs showing their understanding of their reading.
With these reading response prompt forms students write about whatever book they are currently reading (fiction or non-fiction)- increasing choice- increasing engagement!
They learn to write one well-developed paragraph using a hook, topic sentence, and supporting sentences.
Each of the four forms has a slightly more advanced structure guiding them in paragraph creation.
These prompts help the teacher track of what the kids are reading, the progress they are making, the rate of book completion vs. abandoning books, and their understanding of the text. The students get an increased amount of practice in paragraph construction, summarizing, and applying skills from class (using ‘exciting’ words, varying sentence length, adding description, etc). It sets a purpose for their reading.
