Reading Response Rubrics and Prompts Pack (freebie too)

I had such a great response from my Writing Rubrics Pack and a request to make a Reader Response Rubric pack. I'm so excited about this pack! I made 30 reader response prompt pages and cut-out options to use with journals. There are rubrics to go with these prompts and then I made some generic rubrics that would work for a basic retell reading response. There are 33 different rubrics. I used the Common Core Standards to guide this pack. 

Here's a sneak peak:

The reason there are two sets is because I wanted to give you the option of two different grading scales. One set of rubrics with the scale: Needs improvement, Fair, Good, Excellent
The other set has the scale: Developing, Almost There, Just Right, Excellent

I don't start school until September 4th (which is actually sort of early for me compared to the past few years), so I won't have pictures/posts about these in action until then. :( 

I plan on printing these out and organizing them by focus. For example, I'll put all the prompts and rubrics about characters together, all the prompts/rubrics about plot together and so on. When I teach those skills, I'll know where to find them! I'll be posting more about how I will teach the skills necessary to complete these reader responses when I start school. I love how rubrics keep me on track when setting my objectives and expectations for assignments. That leads me to better communicate those expectations to my students. 

If you are interested in this pack, you can get it at my Teacher's Notebook store or my TPT store.

Here's a freebie from this pack! 
I'll probably save this particular one for later in the year and build a lesson around it. (In this pack, there are some prompts/rubrics that are best used earlier in the year and others for later in the year. They would also work for 2nd and 3rd grade and a few would be great for kinders!)
