----->>> Fiction Reading Companion <<<-----
This resource is an excellent companion for any fictional story! It can be used in many different ways and with many different kinds of texts. For example, your students can use them with Cricket Magazines, basil reader, short stories, picture books, chapter books, or any other piece of fiction text.
All of the sections in the Fiction Reading Companion include:
Compare and Contrast
Cause and Effect
This booklet is perfect to use in weekly centers as well. I currently have a Magazine with Friends center in my classroom where my students use this booklet to prove that they have read and understood each short story. At the end of the week, they get credit for the sections they have completed. You can break it up into halves if you prefer, where your students will complete half of the Companion in one week and the other half in the following week. Then, they are practicing all of those reading skills within a two week span.
Some of the pages in the Companion are paired together, for instance, the Asking Questions and Answer Time pages. Students will use one article for these two pages to create questions and answer a friend's questions. This gives your students an opportunity to work together and challenge each other.
