WILD About Reading!

In my classroom, I always used Reader's Workshop. I included shared reading, read alouds, independent reading and guided reading, and word study. To help teachers set up their Reader's Workshop and independent reading components, I put together this jungle safari themed "WILD about Reading" Pack! 

It's so hard to fit everything in one image!
In the pack are student sheets, teacher resources, printable posters & cards, bulletin board materials, and student response bookmarks! This is the full listing of materials included:
-Reader’s Notebook Cover
- Sample Anchor Charts
- Reading Survey
- Myself as a Reader 
- Genre Graph
- Genre Bingo Recording Sheet
- My Reading Goals
- Choosing a Just Right Book
- Book Pass Activity & Recording Sheet
- 2 different versions of bunting banner
- 4 and 5-day versions of Home Reading Record
- 25 Book Club: directions, recording log, 
  recommendation sheet, and bulletin board 
  recognition materials
- Independent Reading Rubric
- Independent Reading Record
- Response Ideas Poster
- 2 different fiction summary posters
- Independent Reading Response Sheet, M-F
- Guided Reading Strategy Cards for Prompting
- Book club Roles & Responsibilities
- Book Club Accountability Sheet
- 6 Bookmarks for recording thoughts during independent reading (connections, visualizing, summaries, questions, predictions, characters, facts)
- “WILD” printable bookmarks
-Teacher Materials: Conference Record Sheet, Library Check-in/out
- Bulletin Board Materials: What is Reading?

I'm excited about this pack. So excited that I'd like to give it out to the first five responders! Leave a comment below with your email address and the answer to this question: What's your favorite read aloud?

  12. This is awesome! I know there are already 5 but I think I will share anyway...I love reading Love you Forever especially around mother's day. Although it's hard to get through since I've lost my mom. :o(
    There are so many good ones though!

    1. Vicky, that would be so tough. Have you read Someday by Alison McGhee? Oh, gosh, it tears me up. Starts out simply, but then all of a sudden, BAM!

      in case you're interested, but it's definitely hard to get through, too.

  13. My favorite read aloud is old school... I love "Summer of the Monkeys" by Wilson Rawls. I can never make it through "Where the Red Fern Grows" as a read aloud but this book has his wonderful writing, humor and adventure and the kids love it!

  14. I love Tiki Tiki Timbo.

    This looks wonderful!!
