    The Common Core and other rigorous standards require students to read, think deeply, and write about their reading. This collection of response to reading prompts is perfect to use all year long. They are low ink, ready to print, and can be used with any text. I hope you find them as useful as I help students prepare for book clubs, to show their understanding about texts (read aloud, independent reading, book clubs, and more), or even to use to collect data and assess student understanding and growth.

    This bundle is a combination of three of my Pausing Points resources at a reduced price. It includes all 14 prompts from each of the three sets (Character Studies, Theme and Event Studies, and Informational Text Studies)--in two different formats--full page and "clippable" to use in reading notebooks. Suggestions for use are included as well.

    So what is a “Pausing Point”?

    A pausing point is a place in a text where you want your students to stop, think, reflect, and write about what is happening. The pausing points in this resource can help you do that—and they are all fully aligned to the Common Core and other rigorous standards.

    These are great for differentiation--you can use them with any level text--so use with your entire class, with small groups, or in any number of other ways. I love being able to use the same "task" even when students are working at different levels.

    The sky is the limit with these!

    What is included?

    • “Suggestions for use” page
    • Common Core alignment page
    • Full Color poster page to guide a “quality response”
    • Black and white reproducible “quality response” checklist (4 per page)
    • 14 full page reproducible “Pausing Point” reading reflections
    • 14 pages of the same pausing points in a “clippable” format to use in a reader’s notebook (3-6 per page)

    Everything you need to get started having students write about texts is right here! This resource is geared toward grades 3-5 but certainly could be used with other students as well.
