Now there are three distinct Reader's Notebooks to help students grades K through 8 become better readers through writing.
Here's an engaging way for primary grade (K-2) students to respond to reading-through thinking, talking, drawing, and writing.
Fountas & Pinnell Reader's Notebook: Primary is an 8 1/2 x11 spiral notebook organized into three color-coded tabbed sections: All About Me, Books I Read, and Letters and Words. It is specifically designed for younger children who may not yet be writing, with ample space to respond through both drawing and writing, with room for teacher support.
All About Me recognizes the younger child's interest in their own developing identities-as individuals and as readers-with space for them to draw and write about themselves, their friends and family, and the books and authors they love. Books I Read outlines the steps for Readers' Workshop in a simple format that includes illustrations that support the print, and provides space for children to record the titles and authors of books they have read, along with space to draw and write about those books. The helpful Letters and Words section provides children with an alphabet chart, high-frequency words, a chart for children to record words as they encounter them, and an Alphabet Linking Chart.
Reader's Notebook: Primary promotes reflection and dialogue about reading and is an excellent assessment tool for documenting reading achievement over time in a readers' workshop that includes independent reading, guided reading, and literature study (book clubs). Used throughout the academic year, the notebook serves as a continual record of one reader's book list, interests, and reading responses.
The Reader's Notebook: Primary is also available in 25-packs.
