This is one of my favorite Friday activity to do with my kiddos! Each week we focus on a new book - read aloud and curriculum book! On Friday my kiddos get into groups to talk discuss what they have learned each week!! It usually includes a bag full of snacks as well :)
In this pack you will find:
Conversations Cards - Laminate and give your students these cards to help guide conversations about the book they are reading
Comprehension Papers - I print these pages ahead of time and glue them on to brown bags full of snacks. Students will draw/write about CHARACTERS, SETTINGS, MAIN IDEA, and DETAILS from the book that they are reading! They love this!!
Expert Cards - Students are given different jobs each week within their group. This allows them to become and expert on the characters in the story, the setting of the story, the main idea of the story, and the details in the story. Each card comes with pictures to help remind students of what each comprehension strategy means!
Wonder Cards - These strips of paper are used to help remind students to ask questions when they read. We will put these on large post it notes and when students are wondering something about characters, settings, main idea and details they are able to come up to the post it note and write down their question!
I hope you enjoy this product as much as my kiddos do!! They look forward to group work each week :)
