Reading Journal Questions for Daily Classwork

Students will then respond to the assigned question based on their independent reading for the day. Responses will be modeled in class before assigning and their written responses will be assessed daily to identify specific teaching needs.

Students will update their daily independent reading journal. They will correctly write the title of the book and show the page numbers they read.
