There is different types of comprehension students need to develop but majority of the time we only test and teach 2, literal and inferred.

I created this Comprehension Dice Game to help my student engage in the text and create some deep understands of the literature being read.

Roll 1: Activating

To help them make connections of prior knowledge and apply it into the new material. This helps students understanding what they are reading and recall relevant experiences from their long-term memory in order to construct meaning from the text.

Roll 2: Summarising/Summarizing

This type of question requires students to figure out the order in which events happened in a story by using their own words.

Roll 3: Questioning

Questioning is a strategy that readers use to engage with the text. Questioning techniques help the reader to clarify and comprehend what he is reading. Struggling readers tend not to ask questions of themselves or the text as they read.

Roll 4: Visualising/Visualizing

Visualizing refers to our ability to create pictures in our heads based on text we read or words we hear. 

Roll 5: Searching

This allows students to search for any words they don’t know and define their meaning with a friend/as a group or gathering words they do know and applying that word in another context to a friend/as a group.

Roll 6: Inference

These questions are less direct compared to factual questions. They require the students to think like detectives and look for clues instead of obvious answers in the text. 

Both Australian and American written ‘Roll 2 & 4” are included.

I print mine double sided so that the title and task/question are together. Student enjoy flipping them over to read the question or task underneath!
