PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Common Core "Pausing Points" Reading Reflections: Informational Texts

The CCSS and other rigorous standards requires that we greatly increase the amount of work we do with informational text. This "Pausing Point" resource can help! Whether you use them with articles from magazines or an encyclopedia, information from a website, a chapter of a book, or a nonfiction picture book--these responses will work! Response to reading is a critical part of instruction--and one that we often overlook!

So what is a “Pausing Point”?

A pausing point is a place in a text where you want your students to stop, think, reflect, and write about what is happening. The pausing points in this resource can help you do that—and they are all fully aligned to the Common Core and other sets of standards!

These are great for differentiation--you can use them with any level text--so use with your entire class, with small groups, or in any number of other ways. I love being able to use the same "task" even when students are working at different levels.


I am providing you with these 14 “Pausing Point” reflections in two formats to help teach response to reading in the way that suits you best!

*Full page reproducibles that can be used for students to track their thinking, to prepare for book groups, or even for you to assess comprehension.

*“Clippable” journal prompts that can be glued into response journals

The sky is the limit with these!

What is included?
*“Suggestions for use” page
*Common Core alignment page
*Full Color poster page to guide a “quality response”
*Black and white reproducible “quality response” checklist (4 per page)
*14 full page reproducible “Pausing Point” reading reflections
*14 pages of the same pausing points in a “clippable” format to use in a reader’s notebook (3-6 per page)

Everything you need to get started having students write about informational texts is right here! This resource is geared toward grades 3-5 but certainly could be used with other students as well. Watch for other "Pausing Point" resources as well!
