Get ready for your students to feel supported and engaged in critical thinking skills with 5th Grade Journeys comprehension! Every Comprehension Test Question from all 30 weekly tests is included in this Resource!
I made these cards for my own students’ SURVIVAL! The questions on the test are so hard at times that they don’t understand what the question is asking! Therefore, the importance of these Comprehension Discussion Cards allows for us to model and teach students how to have rich whole group, small group, and partner comprehension discussions as well as debate and reason to help further their thinking strategies. Every week proves to be productive.
Your imagination is going to go wild in all the ways you can use these cards. A few ideas are small group/partner discussions, weekly ready-made comprehension reading center, playing scoot, and using at the door to exit for recess. For this, I hold the cards at the door. If the child can answer the question, he/she goes out. When I have an answer card, I say the answer and the student has to think of a question for that. If a student misses, back to the end of the line he/she goes! I play a weekly Comprehension Discussion Card game that my students love every week after reading or listening to the Anchor Text. The description is in the preview so I will let you read it! Hint: The winning team wins mints!
Your Resource and Title Teachers are going to want to use these as well. This is perfect support for additional intervention needs.
I have used the Journeys 2014 Edition to make this Resource. In the preview, I have included a list of the Anchor Texts that are in my edition. If you happen to use a different version, you will be able to compare to see if the alignment is similar enough to purchase this Resource. I hope so as this essential supplement makes sure students are always thinking and always engaged!
Enjoy! Happy Comprehending!
Thanks so much,
