What educators are saying

I really love all the options that I can choose from to get reading responses from my students. I can connect to what I am teaching and see what they can do independently as readers.
Great for small groups. Responding in reading notebooks isn't working with my class this year. This helped.


Do you struggle with teaching reading comprehension and reading elements for state tests? Are you looking for reading response sheets for your students that will help them practice the rigor expected on the state reading test?

These reading response sheets can be used with fiction and non-fiction text, including expository, (as well as some poetry). You can use one sheet or combine the sheets to make sure your students are hitting the skills needed for the story or passage.

My 3rd through 5th grade students will be using these as independent response sheets in their Reading Journals. Literature circles, guided reading groups, or Readers Workshop? No problem. Use these sheets to help your students practice those skills that will be seen on the state reading exam.

These sheets cover the following skills:

Character Analysis

Main Idea



Text Features

Figurative Language

Author’s Purpose




Predictions/Citing Evidence



Drawing Conclusions

Point of View
