** I use these graphic organizers and questions daily in my classroom. I find them useful in providing me a quick assessment of student learning and gives me an idea of the level of engagement, particularly when paired with audiobooks (which I LOVE and use daily).
Students use the graphic organizer throughout the reading of an independent or guided reading book to organize thoughts and guide understanding. Use the Common Core aligned response questions as a comprehension check for post-reading understanding. There is also the option of printing the question slips and having children cut and paste response stems into their Writer's or Reader's Notebook.
There is a separate version of BOTH graphic organizer and Common Core comprehension response questions for fiction and nonfiction.
