One way to bring books to life for students is to have them empathize with one of the characters. This fun worksheet engages students in analyzing how a character’s feelings change over the course of the beginning, middle, and end of the book.
As students begin to read independently, they may have questions about what they read. These questions should be encouraged! Have students record their questions about their reading or any unknown words on this graphic organizer.
Help students prepare for reader’s workshop and practice reading comprehension by sharing about books they’ve read. After taking turns telling a partner all about their chosen books, students will write or draw about what their partner shared.
