One of my students was thrilled to show me some of her jottings she had put in her reading notebook after finishing a book when I conferenced with her. She put stars at the bottom of each one to show me that she tried to make better jottings this time. I told her that good readers use the anchor charts to help improve their jottings. She asked me to take a picture of them! She was a little off-base with some of her ratings, but we talked about that during our conference.
