Reading responses do not have to be challenging when you can use sentence stems to get you started! These reading response posters are great as a wall display, as a reference ring, or for student interactive notebooks. There are 12 categories that include over 80 sentence starters in large and mini size.

Each chart gives students multiple ways to begin their written response to eliminate starting each response the same way. These charts will also assist all students (general education, special education, and ESL) with orally responding. If you are looking for your students to have reference charts easily available for use, these are not overwhelming for them.

The 12 categories are:

  • My Prior Knowledge
  • Asking Questions
  • Making Predictions
  • Summarizing
  • Visualizing
  • Making Connections
  • Inferring
  • Characters
  • Evaluating Text
  • Monitoring & Clarifying
  • Author's Craft and Reflection

Ways to Use:

  • Whole group discussion stems
  • Interactive reading notebooks
  • Guided reading (written response or discussion stems)
  • in a picture frame at your guided reading table
  • on binder rings (portable use)
  • on your classroom wall (large anchor charts)

2 sizes are available: a smaller size perfect for student notebooks (can fit 4 on a page in a composition notebook) and standard paper size for large classroom/small group display! Both sizes come in color and black/white!
