Teach “Growth Mindset” concepts as well as the Common Core State Standards with these text-dependent question cards (TDQs) and close reading worksheets uniquely crafted for the read-aloud stories “Ish” (creativity), “Scaredy Squirrel” (courage), “Rainbow Fish” (generosity), and “The Dot” (self-motivation). Each question includes the CCSS cited, the page number of the text where the answer can be found, and sample answers for teacher reference. All worksheets include answer keys which may alternately be used for handwriting practice. We’ve done all the work so you don’t have to!
All of our “Max Learner Book Detective” products help teach the Common Core reading standards by capturing the attention and imagination of primary students with read-aloud stories teachers love! Kids are excited about “solving the mysteries hidden inside of books”! Our No-Prep text-dependent question (TDQ) cards help teachers guide students to the heart of each story where the central message lives. Then, you can extend your lessons with the reproducible worksheets! Use them for independent or partner work, or even for guest teachers. “Close reading” is fun with Max Learner!
