Reader's Notebook: Reading Response Topics

By Beth Newingham on December 4, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

In addition to IDR Task Sheets and Sticky Note Tracker Sheets, students use Reading Response Topics to note their daily thoughts on reading.

Students also have lined paper in this last section of their notebook. While the IDR task sheets and the "Sticky Note Tracker Sheets" are used when I want students to quickly record their thinking as they read or show their understanding of a mini-lesson concept, the reading response topics are to be used when I expect students to truly write about their reading.

As a class, we create a rubric that is used to evaluate the quality of students' responses. Students are required to complete a reading response entry twice a month. For students who I believe need to be challenged, I may request weekly responses.
