As a Reading Specialist, one of my students biggest struggles was slowing down to THINK while they were reading. I started asking my students to respond to prompts on sticky notes while they were reading and this changed everything. They LOVED using the sticky notes and I had the chance to actually see what they were thinking when they responded to the prompts. Here is how it works…
STEP 1: Students will get a prompt sheet, book and sticky notes. They will place one sticky note on each box. While they are reading they will STOP and RESPOND to each prompt.
STEP 2: When they find the answer, or respond to the prompt, they will place that sticky note right in the book where they found the answer.
STEP 3: After they have responded to all of the prompts they will place the sticky notes back onto the Comprehension that Sticks sheet and turn it into the teacher.
