I like to have my students respond to what they're reading independently through writing. Many times my students are unsure of what to write. I created this list of prompts to help guide their writing and eliminate writer's block.
I tape the list to the inside cover of their Reading Response Notebooks. All year, students refer back to this resource. They no longer say they don't know what to write!
I also typed out each prompt on its own card. Now you can display the prompt on the board if you would like everyone to write about the same thing.
