Inference, multiple-meaning, text structure, text features, and vocabulary playing cards are all included! These playing cards build critical thinking and comprehension skills in such a fun way that students do not realize that they are learning. These are some of my newest best sellers in one complete bundle for extra value. Five printable boxes are included. The passages mirror the writing techniques that are used by writers in novels and assessments to give students authentic practice. Realistic fiction, historical fiction, social studies, and science passages are all included to help students build background knowledge as well as practice these skills.

As students race to become the first player to "win", they are actually analyzing text, using context clues, and closely reading text to infer. This is a fun way to review skills and get students to APPLY reading strategies.

This Bundle Includes:

*Inference Playing Cards

*Text Feature Playing Cards

*Multiple-Meaning Word Playing Cards

*Text Structure/Text Organization Playing Cards

*Vocabulary Playing Cards
