11 Fiction Reading Response Ideas for 3rd, 4th, or 5th Grade

Find the Fib, also known as Two Truths and a Lie, is a personal favorite of mine.  It’s a versatile activity that is always fun for students.

It’s easy to have students use it as a response to reading a fiction text.  Simply have students write two true statements about the text they read, and one fib.  Then, have them see if a partner can figure out which statement is the fib!

You can set parameters if you want to focus on a specific skill.  For example, have students write their statements about the main character, or the setting, or the problem of the story.

Check out these other ways to use Find the Fib in your 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade classroom.
