Thank you for all your great ideas! I saw that you have students practice writing a summary in class (after read alouds, during independent reading) before sending it home for homework. Do you have them practice each prompt at the bottom of your response homework sheets in class (after read alouds, in their own independent books) before sending that individual sheet home for homework as well? If so, about how many days do they practice using that response sheet (with the summary and that specific prompt) in class before you send it one for that one week of homework? Also, do you send the same response sheet home multiple weeks for homework or do you only send it home the one week? Thanks so much!
