Writing About Reading in the Writer’s Notebook

The writing a child crafts about a book or an article in her writer’s notebook often holds a lot of meaning or value to her. This kind of writing about reading isn’t about finding the main idea, making predictions, or intertextual connections. Rather, this writing about reading is usually composed in response to something that affected a child so deeply she had to write about it on her own terms.
