Reading Response Freebie

What a busy weekend so far!  I thought I'd take a couple minutes to share with y'all while recovering from going out to watch the hubby play guitar (I'm no Spring Chicken anymore; I got home at 4:00 this morning, and have been in a zombie-like state all day!)  For the record, if you're out till 4AM, and you have 2 young kiddos, the next day is a wee bit demanding.  Not recommended unless you have an au-pair or nanny.

I'm already planning ways to get my 2nd graders ready for the transition to 3rd grade.  Since I'm in a year round school, there isn't an entire summer between grades.  In June, they are 2nd graders.  4 weeks later, in July, they come back as 3rd graders.  I thought I'd work on their responses to reading, so I created a set of task cards full of prompts to use when responding to reading.  A couple of my green beans just need me to give them the list, model it once, and they'll do great.  Most of the class will require a couple weeks of mini-lessons, and do fine.  And then I have the *very* small group who requires me to do everything but hold their pencil - they are the challenge.  There will be modifications for this group, including: tell your response to a listening partner before you write your sentence, limited topics to choose from, and write 1-2 sentences instead of a paragraph.
