I am so excited to share this product with you. I recently finished reading Serafina and the Black Cloak and was BLOWN AWAY. Seriously, I was hooked from the first page! I knew that this would be a fabulous read aloud in my classroom.
Ever since my student teaching year, I have always taken time out during the day to do read alouds with my students, regardless of their age. This time is completely separate from my ELA block and the purpose was mostly to build community through shared reading experiences.
However, recently I have had the desire to up the rigor of our read aloud time. I started to use Accountable Talk and it completely changed our read alouds for the better.
I created these reading response questions to give students a chance to think about, write about, and discuss what they are reading. Some questions are for a single chapter, while others are for 2 or 3 combined chapters. Each question is open ended, allowing students to dig deep and apply their own thinking.
The questions come in two formats, worksheets and task cards/notebook toppers, but be aware that both sets include the SAME questions. I truly hope this product will help guide your reading of this wonderful book!
These questions would be perfect to use during a whole class read aloud of Serafina and the Black Cloak. It would be nice if students each had a copy, but definitely not necessary. You could also use these to support literature circles!
Due to the open-ended nature of these questions, I have NOT included an answer key.
