This bestseller that focuses on the common core standard of asking and answering questions. Even if you aren't teaching common core, it is a vital skill for students to use when reading.

UPDATE: New 3 pages of editable task cards, 1 page (12 cards) of extended response prompt cards, and two interactive notebook activities are now included. Task cards can be edited to align with the story your students are reading. Edit using the pdf version and embedded fonts, or for easier editing and to select your own fonts, use the included editable PPT file. Be sure to see the preview.

This resource includes 6 posters that focus on question words, who, what, where, when, how, and why. They provide a great visual reminder and will help when teaching question and answer strategies.

A set of 24 versatile task cards are included. They can be used over and over again with any literary text. Use them during small group, as an ELA center for 2 or 3 students, or as a task card scoot activity. Response sheets are included for each usage. Student directions are included for the center activity.

3 bonus printables are included for additional practice asking and answering questions about key details in text.
