Here's a reading response strategy that I let my kiddos demo using any book that they would like. Some used their Book Talk books that they were currently reading. Others chose picture books and started from scratch. This one was a winner with my little focus group! :)
They all agreed that they enjoyed creating "models" of this response option for my upcoming fifth graders, and I got some fabulous and thoughtful work from them. They love thinking that they are "modeling" for the new guys and I love that they are showing me what they can really do! I think this strategy is a winner and have added it to my arsenal for next year. Of course it is probably for later on in the year for you as well, but it never hurts to have some different response options to offer. You can add it to your collection too if you like. Grab it here from my Google Drive or click on the snapshot. :)
