These stations and anchor charts for reader's notebooks are designed to teach students the information they need to respond to text and to understand author technique. Use them when you are beginning your notebook work so students can get organized and ready to use their reader's notebooks for independent reading.

There are now options for distance learning, including a digital reader's notebook.

{SAVE: this is part of my Reader's Workshop Bundle]

You will print off and assemble the anchor charts; then, you will set up the stations for your students to work through. At each one, students will fill in the information from the anchor chart on the notebook page provided. It's important for them to write down information that they need to remember, rather than paste in a completed chart. These stations provide them with both the opportunity to do so AND a handy reference to use going forward.

If your directions and expectations are different than mine, you can use the editable template rather than the ready made anchor charts I have provided.

In this file, you will find charts and notebook pages titled:

-What Does It Mean To Be An Active Reader?

-How Do I Annotate a Text?

-How Do I Respond to a Text? (Fiction & Non-FIction)

-Understanding How Writers Create Character

-Understanding How Writers Develop Theme

-Writer's Craft

-Starters for Textual Evidence

-How to Find It in My Notebook
