Heather (comment #30),
The type of Reader's Notebook that my students keep would certainly be very difficult to duplicate in kindergarten, but I am not sure what a kindergarten reading notebook would look like since so many students at that age are not yet "writing." Perhaps it would allow students to illustrate their favorite part of a book or fill in blanks for skills like predicting. (I think _________ will happen.) I will ask some other teachers in my district what they expect in terms of reading response in a kindergarten reading workshop.
A great book for learning more about reading workshop in the primary grades is Kathy Collin's "Growing Readers." I would suggest checking out this resource to learn more about what reading workshop looks like in a kindergarten classroom.
I wish that I could be of more help, but I have no personal experience teaching students at that level. I am hoping Kathy's book will help you out!
