Product Description
This unit contains 33 reading responses that were designed for differentiated learning to be used during guided reading, whole class activities, independent work, Daily 5 or center work such as listening or Read to Self, or even homework. The activities were carefully crafted for a variety of young learners to aid in reading comprehension and can be used with ANY book!
The reading responses in this pack can be used in a variety of ways. I suggest modeling how to use these before asking students to complete them independently. They can be used as reading responses either to a book the entire class is reading or with a book each individual child is reading. They can be assigned during centers or guided reading groups. You can choose one to be completed after listening to reading. They can be used with the class read aloud. You may even assign them as homework.
These responses were carefully crafted to provide a scaffold for a variety of learners. Most sheets have options for students to draw and label the response as well as draw, label, and write it. You may choose to scaffold learning for all students by assigning the draw and label sheet one week and then the draw, label, and write response the following week –or- you could just give different sheets that have the same goal to each individual student. You know your students the best and can decide which sheet a particular child will have success with. It is your choice! This packet is made to fit your needs!
