Book talk and book club task cards including lists of questions for reading discussions, written responses, or book club meetings.
120 question cards to get fiction readers thinking more deeply about what they read. Perfect for books clubs grades 3 through high school and the variety and complexity of questions leads to easy differentiation. The questions are organized by these categories; character, plot, message/theme, summary, personal reflections/connections, and critic comments. The categories are color coded on the task cards. For example, character questions have green borders. If color printing is an issue, just set your printer to black and white only and print the product. Use the task cards any way you like. Give a set to each book club, have students choose cards from of a pile, staple some to a bulletin board as reference points for small group meetings, or however you see fit.
All 120 questions are also listed on pages by category (see thumbnail example above). These are great for quick reference, to include in a conferring binder, to staple into student notebooks for reading responses, or as ideas for book club meetings.
The questions range in complexity. Some are straightforward for a third or fourth grade classroom, while others may better fit middle or high school. I hope that you will find many questions within this product to guide the variety of readers that you teach.
