Today I’m going to share the tasks that are included in my Reading Response Station. I did not use Reading Response Station in first grade, however it’s worked really well in 2nd grade and up. I think younger kids could use it, the tasks would just need to be differentiated.
For Reading Response Station, students write their responses in a spiral notebook. They can write about a book they are currently reading or a past book. I’ve found these ideas online over the years and compiled them into one list. So, I cannot take credit for the ideas – just know they are a compilation of research online for reading response ideas.
Here are the I can options:
- I can write a diary entry from the perspective of one of the character’s in my book.
- I can write a letter to the author telling them what I like and didn’t like in their book.
- I can write a newspaper article about an event in the book.
- I can write a new ending to a book that I have read.
- I can write interview questions to interview a character in my book.
- I can write my opinion of my book or one of the characters.
Thanks for reading all about my ideas for Reading Response Station. Check back Tuesday to see what I include in my Vocabulary Station.
