Linking up with my BBB Jivey for Workshop Wednesday! How do your students respond to reading? I’ve been using a Reader’s Notebook for years where my students and I write letters about what they’re reading, but I wanted to create something different for additional responses to reading so I present to you…my Reading Response Menu!
My students love it because it’s packaged in a cute mini file folder and it gives them choice. They respond to all three categories (appetizer, entrée, and dessert) on their response sheets. They love having choice, but all of the choices require them to dig deep and use their critical thinking skills.
I love these student samples! Such heart and passion!
Do you see that critical thinking in action??!! I’m so happy with this creation and glad I could share it with you today! I’ve been using my Reading Response Menus for some time now, but I had to get on the stick to have it packaged for Jivey’s workshop today! Thanks Jivey!!! This would make a great summer project to get these ready for next year! :O)
