107 Open-Ended Question Cards for Discussion and Writing on Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt

Here are 107 open-ended question cards to enhance your reading of the wonderful novel, Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. There are two types of cards included:

-Cards 1-89 are meant to be used while reading the book. The cards are correlated with specific chapters which are noted at the bottom of each card. There are 1-3 cards for each chapter.

-Cards 90-107 focus on characters, themes, and other elements that run through the whole book. These are best used after you have read the entire book.

Because these cards are meant for discussion or as writing prompts, they are not simple comprehension questions. Rather, they require students to explain, infer, analyze and evaluate. Many of these cards require students to support their answers with evidence from the text. Others ask students to form an opinion about a character or event. Use in partners, with small groups, or with the entire class.
