***I will be adding to this product as the year goes on according to my students' needs. If you would like to see certain reading or writing response pages added, please leave me a message under "Product Q & A" below and I will do my best to add them A.S.A.P.!
My students have enjoyed these reading and writing activities so much this past year. They have been engaged and motivated to write during independent writing time, rotations, and small group time.
Please be sure to download the preview to see most of what's included. (And there's a freebie for you too!)
Included in This File:
Nonfiction Response Sheets- These pages can be used with any nonfiction text. My students especially like the National Geographic Kids series.
Animal and Insect Investigation- There are different pages to choose from, and I print them back to back. You can have your students use nonfiction text or websites such as National Geographic Kids to find the information for the sheets.
Animal Research Report- Your students can choose an animal to research, and write a short summary for each section on the front, and draw a picture on the top.
Read All About It- Students can write a newspaper article about something happening in the news or they can write about something that is happening in a book they are reading.
Writing Pages- There are many choices here, including a diary page, letter paper, note paper, and postcards. You can assign students a topic, such as write a letter to a character, or let them choose how to use the pages.
Cards- Students can write a card to a friend, family member, or character in their book.
These pages are specific to book response. There are many engaging pages to choose from, such as Character Advice, Create a Book Cover, and Fairy Tale letters.
Culminating Book Projects- You can assign a card or students can choose the one they want to complete after they finish their book.
Class Writing Notebook Covers- You can choose the notebook covers you want to use, laminate them, and adhere them to notebooks. Students write about the topic of the cover.
