Reading Response Trifolds for 40 Popular Nonfiction Books (Grades 2-3)
You can kill two birds with one stone with these efficient little "tools" for reading responses. First of all, they encourage the reading of nonfiction. Secondly, they provide an effective means for leading young students through the various aspects of responding to nonfiction. Reproducible and easy to use, each graphic organizer relates to a specific book (40 of them). Books are varied as to content, and there are 4-8 books at each of the Fauntas and Pinnell levels K through Q. With each trifold, the student is guided through several reading strategies (i.e. preview, find the main idea, identify key details, compare and contrast, analyze cause and effect, question, determine importance, use context clues, make inferences, visualize, identify author's purpose, evaluate, synthesize, and summarize) always ending with a requested response. Each tri-fold concludes with suggestions for Extend Your Learning ideas. Providing a systematic introduction to the world of nonfiction, these trifolds are also an excellent way to cover basic reading strategies. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
