New from Fountas & Pinnell - two distinct Reader's Notebooks that help students become better readers through writing. Reader's Notebook (recommended for Grades 2-4) Reader's Notebook: Advanced (recommended for Grades 4-8)
Here's an engaging way to improve your students' reading comprehension and to encourage them to write their thoughts about what they've read. It is also an excellent assessment tool for documenting reading achievement over time in a reading workshop that includes independent reading, guided reading, and genre study.
Fountas & Pinnell Reader's Notebooks: Advanced are 8.5x11 spiral notebooks, similar to what students use every day, but specially designed to promote reflection and dialogue about reading. As described in the authors' best-selling Guiding Readers and Writers, Grades 3-6, the Reader's Notebook is practical and easy to use. In it, students transform traditional book reports into active dialogues. The notebook becomes a personal storehouse of students' thoughts and feelings and a place to access them for later review, reflection, and sharing. It is also a way for teachers to systematically assess students' responses to the texts they are reading independently.
Used throughout the academic year, the notebook serves as a continual record of one reader's book list, interests and reading responses. Students may write in longhand, make charts or quick sketches, or glue in their writings produced on the computer. The Reader's Notebook: Advanced also contains many different resources for writing about reading. It is organized into easy-to-use, color-coded tabbed sections.
The Reader's Notebook: Advanced is also available in 25 packs
