Workshop Wednesday - Reading Response - Charts to Model Responses - Freebie








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.

  1. I love that you have them identify vocabulary on your first chart. I guess maybe I do talk about this with them, but I have never had them document it. I will be adding something like this to my program! Thanks!

  5. Thanks for sharing! I saw Tony Stead at a reading conference about 10 years ago and to be honest, I can't remember why it's called RAN either, but I like his adaptation of the KWL chart! It just seems more interactive and engaging! Of course I like that you keep track with sticky notes!!!

  6. RAN stands for Reading and Analysing Non fiction. Tony Stead explains it in his latest book " reality Checks" I" m going to another one of his seminars in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to it. He is always good value. Wendy from Melbourne

    1. Thanks Wendy, I've had those charts for a few years now and couldn't remember the source. Tony Stead is fantastic, I've only seen him once but it his presentation style was informational and inspirational. Hope you take away a lot of good ideas from his seminar.
