I have created higher order thinking comprehension questions for each chapter of Cam Jansen The Birthday Mystery.
I use these questions with my guided reading groups. We will read a chapter in group and practice answering a question together. I then assign them the next chapter and the corresponding question/questions for homework.
Depending how often your group meets, this could take you a few days or a few weeks.
This book is a guided reading level L, Lexile 390, and AR 2.9.
