I hope you and your students enjoy this “Island of the Blue Dolphins” set of comprehension questions! I have included the same questions in THREE different formats – task cards, question/answer, and in a list. This can be helpful year-to-year depending on your group of students. These questions are meant to be print and go, with little to no prep on your part! I have included 3-5 questions per chapter, depending on the chapter’s length. These questions are written in sequential order. Some questions build on each other, so it’s best to have your students respond to them in order. The answer key for each chapter’s questions is at the end of this packet for your convenience.
Comprehension Question Options:
Task Card Format – Each task card has the chapter at the top along with the question underneath. This is a great option to use for centers, scoot, or group activities. I have included a task card sheet for students to easily respond to the questions.
Question & Answer Format - This option is great to use for daily reading/writing classwork, homework, group assignments, or centers. I have included a cover in case you wish to make packets for your students. This option would also make great glue-ins for interactive reading notebooks. You would just need to print two to a page or reduce the percentage on your copy machine to make it fit notebooks.
List Format – This option is great if you need to cut down on paper. You can copy one page and cut it in thirds for your students to glue in notebooks or put it up on your document camera/smartboard for students to copy down.
RF.4 - Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
RF.4a - Read grade-level text with purpose and understanding.
