I am always looking for work to increase my students ability to think and reason. These are a little hard for my students to do in the beginning of the year but we do it anyway to get them thinking about their answers and teaching them how to go back to the text to support their reasons. By the end of the year, the children can begin to write their answers in a Reading Response Journal. When the students become familiar with the questions and are able to discuss them in detail using examples from the story, it helps prepare them for the future and also for state testing. The kids love them. There are 25 Reading Response Questions, 10 sheets the children can use for recording their answers (2 sets of 5 one with lines and one with dotted lines) and a set of gray line masters that you can send home with the parents to help them support what their children are doing in school. This is a must have for the school year. They are on sale now for $5.00! Don't miss out!
