PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CCSS Reading Discussion Combo (5th Grade) is a combination of my CCSS Aligned Reading Discussion Prompts and the Talking Sticks Book Discussion cards for grade 5. The Reading Discussion Prompts are for whole group use, and the Talking Sticks are best for small groups, centers, or cooperative learning teams. Both items include the same 24 discussion prompts so you can introduce them to the whole class and then let students use them in small groups. Using these prompts will foster effective discussions and help you meet English Language Arts Standards.

Please preview both items from the pages below. Then return to this page to purchase them at a cost-saving combo price!

I like the product, but would have loved to see the RI and RL with a different background. That way it would be easier to sort them when they get mixed up.
On  September 15, 2013Laura Candler answered:
Thanks for your feedback. I added information to the side of each card to help with sorting them out. I thought of changing the background but I they are all color-coded by grade level. I thought it would be confusing to add different backgrounds within a grade level set.

Overall product was nice. I was expecting more complexity in literature discussion questions. Slightly disappointed.
On  August 5, 2013Laura Candler answered:
I am sorry you were disappointed, but I have to wonder why you didn't look at the questions before you bought it. The entire thing, every single question, shows up in the preview. I am one of the few sellers who does this because I never want anyone to be disappointed and it bothers me to get feedback like this. The questions are directly tied to the Common Core but I did try to simplify the wording a bit. I think the complexity comes in with the questioning strategies you use when you dig into the text with your students. I have to wonder if you left feedback before or after using the questions with students. I always prefer teachers use my materials before leaving feedback.

Product Questions & Answers

On  January 14, 2013,  Kerry S. asked:
Laura, I love your products and have followed you for many, many years. Will you be tackling 6th grade CC questions for book discussions any time soon? Thank you for wealth of ideas!!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 14, 2013Laura Candler answered:
Do you feel that the CCSS standards for grade 6 lend themselves to this type of question format? The CCSS reading standards beyond grade 5 start getting more complex and it seemed like it would be a challenge to create a set of questions that would do them justice. Would you like to work with me on this? I could try to come up with a set of questions and if you think they would work, I could take to format them nicely as I've done with the others. You can email me at lauracandler@att.net. Thanks!
