Product Description

This is a set of 61 comprehension questions written to accompany Mary Pope Osborne's American Tall Tales. They are broken down by story. There is a mixture of literal comprehension questions, as well as questions that require students to make inferences. Many of these questions are open-ended and require students to think and justify their answers.

These are perfect for kids who need questions to answer as they read to keep them on track, or a list of questions for a teacher doing book chats, whether they are familiar with the text or not. For example, if a child tells you they are on chapter 8 of the book, you can select a few questions from that chapter, or a previous chapter, to check their understanding. Answer keys are included for convenience. There are two formats available--one that leaves room for students to answer, and one that is more condensed for the teacher to use in conferences or for students to use to answer in journals or in Google Classroom.

Please check back frequently if you need other sets--I will be adding novels to my store consistently and creating bundles for teachers to use with their classroom libraries.

The bundle that includes all reading guides can be found here.
