Respond to Literature - 3 Book Response Templates



by Susan Stephenson, www.thebookchook.com



In most curricula there is an emphasis on asking children to respond to literature. One way to do this is to write a book review, and I have suggestions for kids who want to do that in my article How Do Kids Write a Book Review.

But a conventional book review is not the only way for kids to think about and reflect on something they’ve read. I have created three templates, each of which guides children’s response to a book. These templates are PDFs which are free for you to download and use if you are a parent, teacher or librarian who works with children.

The first is colour, and is a comic panel format with a little character asking kids questions that guide their response to a book.

The second is virtually the same, but in black and white and no character, so kids can completely design their own response.

The third is colour and has more emphasis on connections kids can make to text.

You can read more about them, and download them, at my website in Free PDFs, Book Response Templates.

While you’re there, check out all the free PDFs I offer to parents, teachers and librarians who work with kids. You might also be interested in Posters: Helping Kids Select Books.
