Reader's Response Freebie

Hey Everyone-
The snow has just started falling and I'm snuggled warm inside working on this freebie for you all!  Well, truth be told, it's for some kiddos in my class who could benefit from the outline structure.  My 4th and 5th graders are expected to turn-in weekly responses about our read aloud book. (Currently, Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper)

Within the reader's response, the student has to provide a summary of the main events that take place including the title of the text and author.  The second paragraph is when the student demonstrates the use of two reading strategies including text support and a reflective statement that requires students to prove how the strategy has helped them.  The final statement is an overall lesson that demonstrates a key understanding of the text.  When this is all rolled together it becomes a challenging and exciting way for students to share their thinking!
