Reader's Notebook Response Pages: Resource Details & GIVEAWAY!

I'm really excited about my expanded line of Reader's Notebook resources, and I want to make sure you understand all of the new options and combinations that you can get.

I've used these reader's notebook response pages with my own students extensively, to aid whole group reading lessons, for small group book clubs, with partner reading assignments, and with guided reading groups. They can be used as individual reading response sheets or stapled into fun little reader's notebooks. Here are a few photos of my students using pages from my resources:

I originally had just two main notebook resources, one to use with literature and one to use with informational text. Here's what they used to look like:

Here's what the the cover pages look like after a little makeover:

These resources have always had three differentiated levels of response pages. They are nicknamed: Light Roast (lower level, wider line-spacing), Medium Roast (middle level, original line-spacing), and Dark Roast (higher level, smaller line-spacing). (The nicknames are a nod to my love for iced-coffee.)

Since many teachers in younger elementary grades may not need the Dark Roast level, and many teachers in older elementary grades may not need the Light Roast level, I created editions containing just two of the differentiated levels, instead of all three, for a lower price.

For example, you can get the original resource for literature (shown above) with only the Light Roast and Medium Roast levels, and save $4. And likewise, you can get it with only the Medium Roast and Dark Roast levels, and save $4. (See the covers below.)

And after numerous requests, I also created full-page versions of everything! Oh yes I did.

To help show all of the different choices and bundles, I made the infographic below. Click on the picture, and it will take you to a free download from my TpT shop. Not only does the infographic visually explain the different options, it also has icons linked to every choice available. So if you are interested in one of my Reader's Notebook resources, but aren't sure which one is right for you, downloading the free infographic is a great place to start.

  1. Hi Michael,

    Love your blog...One thing though - the rafflecopter is NOT working. You may need to recopy the html code.

    Just an fyi.


    1. Hmmm... thanks, Kelly. It should be working. It's showing a few entries so far over the last hour. I know the giveaway image usually shows up on the blog post, but the link should take you to the entry form. I hope it ends up working for you!

  2. I'm moving to 3rd grade next year and I am just loving your blog. It is giving me such a wonderful concept of where my 3rd graders and I should be going throughout the year. I can't wait to use your ideas next year! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I tried entering your raffle, but the link said that it was not accepting more entries. I really like your ideas.

  4. I love your response pages! <3
