This pack is an awesome resource for readers and may be used in a variety of ways.
Included in this wonderful resource is:
*Student booklet cover
*14 graphic organizers that I have created to make them more user-friendly for children
*Reference page of genres
*4 different graphs to keep track of genres read throughout the month
*A reference page of questions to ask before, during, and after reading
*Student goal setting sheet for each month
*Student rubrics for each month to assess the progress throughout the year
*Student self-assessment pages to use for Independent Reading Time
*A reading log to keep track of titles, authors, genres, and whether a book was just right or not
*A variety of reading response pages that children use to rate and respond to literature that is read to them or that they have read
*12 pages of months to help divide the Reading Response Book
I like to put these pages into 1 or 2 books for the kids to use throughout the year. The pages may be used separately and placed in folders or binders, or they may be used as stand alone worksheets, as well.
I have included an outline of how I put the pages together to make a workable book for my kiddos!

I absolutely love teaching...I also LOVE creating items to use with my little kiddos so I can keep learning FUN! All of the items I sell on Teacher's Notebook are items I have used in my own classrooms. Because I've taught K-3, I have a wide range of materials to offer. I have been teaching for 25 years. I am lucky to be able to teach with my best friend, as well...the only thing that would make it better, is if our principal would let us knock out one of the walls! She is also the one who encouraged me to sell the items I use in my classroom. My Teaching Style I am a very hands on and creative teacher who hates to have paper everywhere! I guess that is why I keep working to make items that can be used year after year. I teach with the Daily 5 & CAFE method and do lots of writing with my kiddos. We really like to talk, draw, and write... The kids LOVE to hear stories about my life...they especially like to hear about the dirt hill! I also teach 3rd grade math to our 2nd graders...these kids never cease to amaze me!
