These reading response sheets were designed to accompany the guided reading of Grace Lin's The Year of the Dog.
The document includes two separate sets of reading responses: one designed for lower-level, fluency-focused readers (Level 1) and one designed for slightly higher-level readers (Level 2). Differences in student reading speed have also been considered. Because each reading response sheet was written for a single guided reading session, there are fourteen Level 1 reading response sheets and ten Level 2 reading response sheets.
Points of emphasis include amassing vocabulary, identifying character traits, making inferences about characters' thoughts and feelings, determining main ideas, and developing general reading comprehension skills.
