Student Reading Notebook Samples

Students in upper grades often keep reading notebooks in order to jot their ideas about read aloud, independent, and club texts. These notebooks serve as a collection spot with shorter jottings that often turn into longer entries in which students use writing as a tool to think about their reading. This means that a reading notebook can hold all sorts of different types of entries depending on the work a reader needs to do and the work required by a particular text. Here you will find samples of reading notebook entries. Click on the links below to view these samples.
