With my goal and purpose in mind, I created reader’s response checklists to go with each Common Core state standard for Informational and Literature (3rd-5th grade available).
Here is a breakdown of one of the checklists.
I know that using this type of rigorous reader’s response that is specifically aligned with the common core standards will help my students master the standards in a way they never have before. This will help them have those rich discussions about texts that common core requires. Since these checklists are aligned to the standards, they will allow the students to continue practicing the standards they are learning during instruction with their independent reading.
Click on the images below to check out the 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade sets. The 3rd grade set is differentiated to help you support your younger readers. If you teach struggling readers in 4th or 5th, I suggest looking at the 3rd grade version. Two FREE checklists are in the preview of each set for you to try out with your students.
Do you use reader’s response in your classroom? I would love to hear about it!
