PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is a ready to print and use set of chapter comprehension questions and answer key. There are questions that include a range of literal, inferential, and research questions. Students respond to the questions in complete sentences.
These questions can be used for literacy groups, silent reading, or guided reading groups. I have found that these comprehension questions have increased student test scores in comprehension immensely!

I did not like these questions at all. The questions are too simple and do not make the kids think at all. All questions are found directly in the text.
On  November 7, 2011Sherrie Taylor Vann answered:
I am sorry you did not care for the questions, but there are several questions that require the students to use critical thinking skills. I also word many of the questions so that students make inference.
