Reading Notebook: A great alternative to book reports. Allows you to monitor what the student is thinking as they are reading. Struggling writers could develop an audio reading notebook on their iPod or iPad.
Great Interactive Reader's Notebook- I'd use it for writing word study. requires very little cutting and gluing during small group reading time- 4 sections- great way to keep students organized and accountable for their reading
This third grade teacher shares what makes reader's notebooks work in her classroom and what she has learned over the past few years of using them. Plus, a coding anchor chart and FREE tabbed pages are included!
I love the way this teacher organizes student reading so that even Daily 5 reading can be tracked and students become more self-aware of their habits. Some good sections to include in readers notebooks.
