Reading Responses Made Easy

Need a quick (and FUN!) way to have your students respond to their reading?

Well - it can be as easy as a roll of the die.

You may have remembered a few weeks ago when I told you about an easy way to help your students to get creative in their writing:  Roll and Write.

Well, let's roll that fun (ha, get it, roll?) right into reading with "Read and Roll"

Each number on the die represents a different type of response task - making it easy for the students to know what to include in their responses and easy for you to set this up and let it run itself.  The responses are relatively quick for the students to complete in one sitting.

You can snag this "Roll and Read" for free on TpT.

Now, if you want to take it a step further with some more involved reading responses, then you may want to check out one of my latest resources on TpT - Reading Choice Boards:

I made these as part of the Teacher Appreciation Week last week over on The Classroom Nook (The Classroom Game Nook's sister-blog), and now they are available on TpT.

In this game-like response activity, students can choose which activity they would like to complete from each row.  The types of activities are strategically placed on the grid so that students will pick at least one writing response (row 1), one craft-y type response (row 2), and one critical thinking response (row 3).

In addition to the choice boards themselves, the resource also include the activity sheets that go along with the activities on the board.
You can see all the details on TpT.

How are your students responding to their reading?  Do you have a system set in place, or do you change it up often?
