Simple Reading Response
Our simple Reading Response recording sheet is great for any time of the year, especially if you are going to have kiddos fill it in independently.  We like to use this template at the beginning of the year as we introduce our Reading Workshop time and focus on traits of good readers.  We use this in a lesson about how 'Readers Think While They Read.'  Here it is paired with a favorite read aloud, The Bad Seed!  Grab the book on Amazon!

Story Elements / Story Retell
Our simple Story Elements recording sheet also has a BME retell spot! Here it is paired with a favorite Back to School read aloud, Lacy Walker, Nonstop Talker!  Grab the book on Amazon! (affiliate link)

Main Idea Puzzle
The Main Idea Puzzle is a fun way to show how details go together to support the main idea!  Pair it with nonfiction read alouds.  Here it is paired with Winter is Here by Kevin Henkes, a great book to welcome the new season (an he has books for the other seasons too)!

Main Topic
The Main Topic response sheet encourages readers to think about the topic in the book they are reading WHILE the read!  Here it is paired with Spiders, because kiddos love animal non fiction books!   Grab the book on Amazon! (affiliate link)

Central Message
The Central Message response sheet encourages kiddos connect the central message of a book to their own life. We like to use a book with a very simple message which kiddos can easily relate to.  Mr. Panda books are great!  Here we've paired the response sheet with Please, Mr. Panda.

Learning Lessons
The Lesson Learned response sheet encourages kiddos find the lesson a character or characters are learning in the book.  Check out this book, Giraffe Problems!  It's got such a good message and lesson that the giraffe learns!   Grab the book on Amazon! (affiliate link)

Characters Change
We LOVE Mean Jean!  She a strong character and she has a great change of character in the book!

Asking Questions
Good Readers stop and ask questions to think more clearly about the text they are reading!  One great thing about having students stop and ask questions as they read is that you can go back to the questions after they finish the text and answer their questions!  We love to pair this response sheet with Bear books by Karma Wilson.  Here, it is paired with Bear Wants More!

Mental Images

Making Inferences

The Inferring response sheet encourages readers to 'look' in close to the text and find clues that help them understand more about what's happening.  Kiddos are encouraged to find words, pictures, and senses to find clues about events in the text.  Here, we've paired it with Lion's Lunch.
