If you have previously purchased the Launching Readers’ Workshop unit of study from my Literacy Treasures store, you already own these two lessons.

However, this Reading Toolkit addition also includes a student think sheet for collecting thinking about a text.


Stop and Jot to Show Reading Thinking contains two minilessons pulled from the Launching Reader’s Workshop unit of study. These two lessons can stand alone to be used in your reading curriculum plan.

One lesson introduces how to stop and jot while listening to the conversation with a text in your head while you read.

The second lesson analyzes the types of thinking a reader does while reading. It breaks down the types of thinking that deepen understanding of text and the thinking that does NOT deepen understanding of text.

Also included are think sheets for students to collect their thinking about a text. These think sheets can be easily collected for the teacher to analyze and collect information to inform future instruction and conferring points.

Also available to use with this product is the

Stop and Jot Assessment Tool

to assess a reader’s understanding of text.
