Create a booklet while reading ANY fiction or nonfiction chapter book - 50 reading response worksheet choices, 12 cover page choices, and 6 culminating book review writing choices! Take reading response activities to the next level and move beyond comprehension questions and basic summaries of what was read. These reading response worksheets with activities will challenge your students to use higher-order thinking skills, think more deeply about what they read, and make meaningful text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections!
Do you ever feel like your students do a lot of reading but don’t necessarily have a lot to “show” for it? Are they in a rut of doing the same old routine of reading chapters and then completing comprehension questions or writing narrations? If so, it’s time to change it up!
Do you have an advanced reader, a gifted and talented student, or even a reluctant reader? If so, this pack might be just what you’re looking for. The pack contains tons of “outside the box” writing/response activities and offers the kind of VARIATION and INTEREST that both advanced and struggling readers benefit from. You can use the 50 chapter response worksheet choices to target specific skills throughout the school year, or allow your students to choose the response activities that are of interest to them.
With this pack, your student will create a complete booklet for any chapter book. Your student will select a cover page design, complete a chapter response page after each chapter, and complete a book review response page at the end of the book. Better than a hum-drum book report, the finished product will be a UNIQUE and PERSONAL representation of the learning that went on throughout the reading of the WHOLE book. These are ideal for assessments, portfolios, or year-to-year memory keeping.
This pack reinforces important concepts such as:
sequence of events
cause and effect
facts and opinions
identifying new/unfamiliar vocabulary
using graphic organizers
Storage: This is a large file! Consider printing all of the pages and storing them in individual page protector sheets in a binder. This is a useful way to organize the pages and keep them all visible, especially if you plan to allow your students to choose their own pages to complete.
Printing: Some pages may require you to select 'Scale to fit paper' when printing.
