Reading Response Letters
A part of our curriculum is reading response letters, which students write about what they are reading in the form of a letter to their teacher each week in their reader's notebook. Each week, the teacher will write back and ask them further questions. The paragraphs usually consist of the following:
1. Summary 2. Connections, Predictions, Wonderings, Answering further questions 3. Mini Lesson Connection 4. Wrap up and Conclusion
With these letters, I found myself lugging home many notebooks each week. I now have decided to do this on google classroom, to create more of a fluid discussion and to reduce the paper.
