Reading Response Bookmarks

Ok. So my daughter is in 5th grade. Year after year she comes home with her Reading Log which I have to sign every day.

From first to second grade, she was only responsible for the following:

1- Read any book of your choice.
2- Write the title of the book in the reading log.
3- Parent signs the reading log every day.

Here is a free reading log. 

In fourth grade:

1- Read any book of your choice.
2- Read out loud for 20 minutes.
3- Choose a reader’s response question prompt to write about your reading.
4- Parent signature.

In fifth grade:

1- Select a chapter book.
2- Read at least 20 minutes a day.
3- Write the title of your book in your reading log.
4- Write page numbers that were read.
5- Write a brief summary about your reading.
6- Student signature
7- Parent signature
8- Write the number of AR points acquired that week.

My daughter loves to read. She carries a book wherever she goes, but to the grocery store? How can you read while walking around shopping for groceries? Well, I am sure that a lot of people can read while walking. Not me:) She even reads in the car. How does she do that? I get car sick when I try that 🙂
I am so glad that Daisy enjoying reading that much.

One day, I was buying her little reading light and a fancy little bookmark. Sometimes she does not even use that cute bookmark because she does not want to misplace it. So, she uses little pieces of paper and has to keep flipping through the pages to find her place when trying to do a reader’s response entry.

Hmmm. I think that her paper bookmark can serve a better purpose. So, I came up with the idea of Reader’s Response Bookmarks earlier this year. I am thinking that the younger readers might be able to illustrate their responses. Older readers can write and/or illustrate as space permits according to the length of the response. I am thinking that these are best suited for 2nd to 5th grade.

This book has 72 Reader’s Response Bookmarks which include graphic organizers and vocabulary development skills.

Here is a freebie for you. I hope that you like it.
