The following book mark was created to provide students with question stems that would help them generate meaningful questions to lead discussions after reading a story. I have used this book mark with first graders and up, however I am sure it could be used with K as well! After reading a story as a class I pass out the book marks to students. I will start the discussion with one of the question stems and then call on someone to answer. That student then creates a question and the process continues. I require that students respond to the question with evidence from the text by citing the page number if it is shared reading or using the read aloud to turn to the page they are referring to.
This book mark can also be used in Literacture Circles to guide the Discussion Director
This book mark supports the Common Core Speaking and Listening standards are all grade levels.
