Treasures Readers Response Prompts Freebie

First things first, congratulations to Karen from A is for Apple, B is for Blog for correctly guessing how many years I've been teaching on my last post! I will be emailing you My Place Value to the Hundred Millions Daily Review product after I hit publish!

After four weeks of school, I think we will finally have a routine to follow next week.  While I love my kiddos, this school years beginning has been anything but smooth.  Finally, next week we have a normal week.  Title One reading has started, our intervention aides start next week, and I *think* we've found a good balance between my class and their special education teachers class for my ED students beginning on Monday, meaning we can really, really hit the ground running.  

Since next week will be a "normal" week, I plan on starting to add response questions from our reading series to our readers response notebooks.  I first blogged about my reading response notebooks {here} 

We've been doing mini lessons on good responses with our read a loud Fudge a Mania last week, and will be starting to use them tomorrow.  Doing mini lessons and constructing responses on a common text has made a huge difference in getting my kiddos excited about their readers response journals and many of them can't wait to get their hands on them tomorrow! :)

Formative assessment and reflecting on student work is a huge thing in my district, and while looking over our first two reading tests, I could tell that we need some extra practice in responding to questions about the text, especially when it comes to restating the question.  So I created some readers response questions to go with our weekly story from our reading series.  Thanks so much to Courtney for the inspiration!


Here is a little sample of what one would look like in a journal! 
Here is a little peek at a page of questions for  The Astronaut and the Onion. I've included lots of different questions for each story.  I won't use all of them, but it's nice to have a variety!
If you'd like a copy, just click {here} to download! The background will appear once you download the actual file.  Also, there is no need to ask me to share anything from my Google Drive.  If you would like to download a file, just go to file and click on download! Easy peasy!

If you download, I'd love it if you either followed my blog or left me a comment.  Thanks! :)

Enjoy your Sunday! I hope to be in more a posting routine soon, now that the house is unpacked and school is getting into a more normal routine! :)
