Comprehension Strategy Question Fans - Primary Grades
- Questions and Prompts for Reading Responses
This resource contains questions and reading response prompts to use for comprehension checks after reading ANY text. They can be used for guided reading groups, after read alouds, during whole-class shared reading activities, for partner discussions after independent reading, or for language centers.
There are 9 different groups of questions and prompts - one group for each of the comprehension strategies: Asking Questions, Determining Importance, Inferring, Making Connections, Monitoring Comprehension, Predicting, Summarizing, Synthesizing, and Visualizing. Each group of questions will make its own fan. You can use a particular fan when studying a particular comprehension strategy, or use different fans to reinforce the different comprehension strategies throughout the year. You could also group all the questions together on a binder clip circle and hang near your desk for easy access during reading activities. At the end of each strategy, there is a blank page so you can add your own questions. These are non-editable though, so you will have to write in your questions.
I have also included pages that include all the questions for each strategy in a checklist format. The teacher can use these to keep track of questions posed to the class, or the students can use them to keep track of questions answered.
The question sheets should be printed out on cardstock or on regular paper and laminated for extra durability. Cut out the individual questions and punch a small hole in the end of each question. Questions can then be put together with a brass fastener or a binder ring to keep them together.
