We all know that it’s critical to understand our students as readers from the get-go. Ready to Read! is a casual interview that encourages your students to reflect on their own reading habits. The questions are written with a wide variety of learners in mind and almost every page has a space where students can draw to support their answers. Your students are asked to write about:
• who they like to read with (alone, with a friend, with a group etc.)
• what genres they like to read
• where and when they like to read
• a scene from their favorite book and illustrate it
Ready to Read! also includes:
• 1 reading log
• 1 fabulous reading themed word search + answer key
Bonus! This packet will be a handy reference when parent/teacher conference time rolls around. I used this to interview my students in the beginning middle and end of the school year. I found it a valuable tool to track changes in what and how my students enjoyed reading. I would add all three interviews plus copies of every reading log to their portfolio at the end of the year.
One more thing…each illustration has a title that is a play on a real title of a book. Challenge your kids to name the correct title!
As always thank you for visiting my shop!
