Compressed Zip File
Be sure that you have an application to open this file type before downloading and/or purchasing. How to unzip files.
**UPDATE: I have revised the product. All cards are now 2.5 x 4 inches. They should now fit nicely onto index cards! I also included a different font option (Chalkboard bold). The zip file includes a .pdf and Word document in case you want to add or alter questions. I also included a page of blank cards in case you wish to handwrite text-specific questions. :-)
These cards feature 9 question and answer sentence stems to support academic discussions. Train students so that during centers or after reading with a friend, they take a card and quiz each other with the cards. I recommend training students in 1-2 questions at a time, and rolling out more questions as they become familiar. You can also remove cards and replace with new questions to keep it fresh and interesting.
These cards will make your life easier and ensure students are interacting with texts and classmates productively. The questions align with CCSS ELA standards, and especially benefit English Language Learners in grades 1-3. They also cover the range of Bloom's Taxonomy, so students can select harder or easier questions that use a variety of thinking skills, from literal recall up to forming opinions.
