PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The following discussion cards can be printed, laminated, and used during:
• Literature circles
• Book clubs
• Guided reading discussions
• As a writing prompt for responding to reading. This could be done individually and then students could read their written responses in a small group.
• Partner reading
• Share time at the end of independent reading
Students can use these open-ended questions over-and-ever again. They can make up the rest of the question based on characters, events, and settings in the book they are currently discussing. Because the questions are open-ended, students can use the same card to make up several different questions from the same book!
