Literature Response

I am so glad summer is finally here. Yay!
I thought before I get totally in summer mode, I would share a couple of things we worked on at the very end of the year.  I decided to create new response forms for both fiction and nonfiction.  I tried it out with my kiddos at the end of the year, and they really liked the new format.  You'll notice the spot for a fluency check.  I like to have my students time each other as quick fluency checks on their library books.  I also do  fluency spot checks to make sure they are checking out "just right" books.  I keep it simple, they time each other for a min. and write down their fluency.  You can get the Book Bonanza in my TPT store by clicking HERE





I also created a mini literacy unit to go along with the Big Al by Andrew Clements.  I absolutely love this book and thought it would be fun unit for the beginning of the year.  It has a heart warming message about friendship, so it would actually work well any time during the school year.  I had a smaller group of second graders at the very end of the year for our extended year program, and we had a great time with Big Al.  Here are a few pics of their work.

You can get all the activities above by heading over to my TPT store.  Of course, I had to end with a FREEBIE.  So, this is a little activity to use along with all those extra Scholastic flyers you might have lying around.  I like to use it in a balanced literacy station.  Click on the image below to grab your freebie.
