I LOVE interactive reading response activities! There is soooooo much you can do with this strategy. One idea…
Before reading the text, students write down questions, prior knowledge, or predictions on strips of construction paper about the text. During the reading, students write new learning, inferences about text, and connections to text on strips. After reading, students develop and write down thoughts on strips that cover main idea, author’s purpose or theme. After responses are completed and placed in their ‘pocket full of knowledge’, students partner around the room to discuss their text responses. Finally, we come together and participate in a whole group text wrap-up discussion. Before leaving, they jot down one – three pieces of information that stuck with them about the text. Students place their sticky note on my “What Stuck with Me” anchor chart; this can act as a quick formative assessment and lead to further text discussions.Check out more and grab your FREE Pocket Full of Knowledge, Interactive Reading Notebook FREEBIE!
