Differentiated Reading Instruction through Reading Response Notebooks

I am honored to be able to learn alongside teachers from around Cobb County and the state of Georgia this summer as we expand our minds and prepare for the upcoming school year.  Below, you will find resources for setting up and utilizing reading response journals.  Please feel free to borrow, modify, and adapt these resources to meet the needs of your students and as always, should you have any follow-up questions, please feel free to let me know!

Favorite Books of the 4th Nine Weeks

One of our goals at the beginning of the year was to create "Favorite Books" videos at the conclusion of each nine weeks.  Miraculously, two things occurred: 1) we remembered and 2) we had time.  I joke about this being miraculous because I fully believe that we make time for the things that are important to us.  Reading is important to us and as a result, is important to our students.
