Independent reading is a necessary real-world skill. In addition, classrooms expect independent readers by the time students reach elementary grades 4th and 5th. This activity will allow students to develop an understanding of how to respond to literature and how these responses build comprehension skills. The more students are focused on their reading the more independent they become. Literature responses improve student focus and can be used as formative assessments for standards related to literature and informational text.
