Here are ten reading warm-ups with inference-type questions on the back; just print out double-sided. A suggested answer key is included. They are high-interest fiction and are excellent for students to read aloud. The first five are quarter-page; the last five are more advanced and half a page. They seemed to always spark interesting class discussions, and they really got the students thinking.
They could also be used for centers if printed onto card stock, and can be easily graded.
