Literacy Stations – Reading Response Station Ideas

Literacy Stations

Today I’m going to share the tasks that are included in my Reading Response Station. I did not use Reading Response Station in first grade, however it’s worked really well in 2nd grade and up. I think younger kids could use it, the tasks would just need to be differentiated.

For Reading Response Station, students write their responses in a spiral notebook.  They can write about a book they are currently reading or a past book.  I’ve found these ideas online over the years and compiled them into one list. So, I cannot take credit for the ideas – just know they are a compilation of research online for reading response ideas.

Here are the I can options:

  • I can write a diary entry from the perspective of one of the character’s in my book.
  • I can write a letter to the author telling them what I like and didn’t like in their book.
  • I can write a newspaper article about an event in the book.
  • I can write a new ending to a book that I have read.
  • I can write interview questions to interview a character in my book.
  • I can write my opinion of my book or one of the characters.


Thanks for reading all about my ideas for Reading Response Station.  Check back Tuesday to see what I include in my Vocabulary Station.
