Workshop Wednesday - Reading Response - Charts to Model Responses - Freebie
Elementary AMC May 22, 2013
I am linking up with Jivey for her Workshop Wednesday linky. Be sure to check out her awesome blog and her post today - I loved it!
This week's theme is reader response ideas. I am going to show you the two charts I use in shared reading lessons to model responses and to record student ideas.
The first is the Go Chart. I use this at the beginning of the year for fiction books. When starting a new shared reading book I record student responses on sticky notes and place them on the chart (2 pieces of bristol board with headers and white paper for where the sticky notes go). I work with the students to develop a strong response - we do a lot of oral responses and prompting. Then I move to everyone writing their own response on a sticky note and placing it on the chart for a different shared reading book. Finally I move to having them complete a Go Chart for their own guided reading book.
The second is a RAN chart (I don't know why it is called that). I use this when we start non-fiction reading. I follow the same process: 1st time me recording, 2nd time them recording and sharing, 3rd time independent recording for their own book.
I like these charts because they help me model the basics to my students and can be left up like an anchor chart!
I am including a copy of each chart if you are interested in using them with your students. Click on the picture to pick up a copy - I print them on 8.5 x 14.
