Reading Response Station

Here is my Reading Response station that my kiddos go to after they listen to a story at the listening station. I differentiate it by using leveled book reports or graphic organizers. Students choose which reading response sheet they would like to complete out of their colored, labeled pockets (made with laminated file folders). I give each group two reading response options. I have 3 different leveled groups with 2 different options so altogether there are 6 different sheets in the reading response center. I typically change them out every 3-4 weeks! As you can see from the pictures, I use already made response sheets for this center. I don't know about you, but I have an extensive variety of graphic organizers. One of our first grade standards is that a student uses them to understand text, which makes them a perfect fit for the listening station!
