    Instead of writing down all of their thoughts or recording their responses, they have cards that keep them focused, on-topic, yet able to listen, speak, and discuss. As teachers we don’t need one more thing to PHYSICALLY GRADE! These CHIT CHAT CARDS can be used as a formative assessment after reading any fiction or nonfiction selection and can be used during partner time, small group, whole class discussion, or for reading conferences. Genius, right?! Use them how you see fit, but use them. These CHIT CHAT CARDS are also a perfect tool for reading intervention. I promise your students will love the time they have to interact, share, and discuss text.


    • Print and laminate Chit Chat Cards. You will need a few sets for whole class work.

    • Have students read any fiction or nonfiction selection.

    • Pass out the Chit Chat Cards.

    • Partner students and allow them time to read through and discuss the Chit Chat cards.
