How do you have your students respond to reading? What reading response questions do you ask your students? Do you use reading response graphic organizers? I am a GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS girl for sure.
There’s tons of research on the use of Thinking Maps, Graphic Organizers, etc. and how it’s extremely effective in helping children organize their thoughts and UNDERSTAND what they are reading.
I am really excited because I just finished my Common Core Reading Response Pages pack for 2nd grade! This resource is going to be really helpful and I am super excited about using these next week during my guided reading groups! They’re definitely going to help keep my guided reading groups organized and effective.
Each of these sheets is aligned to the 2nd Grade Common Core Literature Standards and I’ve posted the standard in the top right corner. This is great for when I’m pulling reading response questions and activities that align to the common core standard I need to teach for that week AND it’s great for administration to see! Boom.
These reading response graphic organizers can also be used for students to fill out during Independent Reading time or Daily 5’s Work on Writing time when they’re working on answering reading response questions or prompts –since the common core is BIG on writing about reading.
I also plan to use these during WHOLE GROUP lessons for when I have a substitute. One of the easiest things for me when planning for a sub…is providing him or her with a read-aloud, then an accompanying reading response graphic organizer page. Super, super easy. And when I’m out sick or home with my sick girls, I NEED EASY. 🙂
I hope you find these graphic organizers for your guided reading groups helpful!
