Reader's Notebook: The Reading Response Section

By Beth Newingham on November 30, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

When transitioning from an actual notebook to a binder, it was difficult for me to determine what the Reading Response section of my Reader's Notebook would look like. When using a spiral notebook, it was hard for my 3rd graders to keep their responses organized, and I was frustrated when trying to read their responses. This section of my binder is now more structured. The following is one of three ways that students repond to their reading on a daily basis.

IDR Task Sheets: I ask students to use these task sheets when I just want them to do a quick task when reading during IDR (individualized daily reading) time. I want my students reading for the majority of IDR time and am careful not to always give them tasks that take up the entire time that should be spent reading self-selected texts from their book box.
