101 Ways to Respond to Independent Reading

Dear Teachers,

Thank you for checking out my independent reading response packet. This truly has been a labor of love and I am so excited to share the finished product with you. In this packet, you will find 101 different resources to use during independent reading. Some may be used by the whole class on a particular day, some may be stored in your classroom library and students may pick them to go along with what they are reading. 

If you use the interactive reader’s notebook approach in your classroom, this packet is easily compatible. There are instructions for printing ½ size at the end of this packet.

What’s Included:

37 organizers to use with any book

18 for fiction only

22 for fiction focusing on character traits

15 for nonfiction

3 for chapter books (perfect for a mini-book club or literature circle)

5 Common Core cubes (some assembly required!)

1 Poster for Turn & Talk Strategy
