This product contains comprehension questions for each of the decodable readers that come with the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Journeys (2014 edition) curriculum for UNIT 3. There are four decodable readers for each lesson (so 20 stories in all), and five comprehension questions for each decodable reader.
Even though the purpose of decodable text is not for deep comprehension, I found that students were rushing through reading each story, without understanding what they read. I designed these questions to give me a way to check to make sure students understood what they read. These questions are meant to be used as a quick check to see that students are understanding what they read. It also lets them practice going back to the text to answer some "right there" questions.
The files are in three formats: one format is in a half page sheet for reference for the teacher to use in small group guided reading. The second is in a task card format that students can use individually or in paired reading. The third format is a written question and answer. I hope these can help you get the most out of the decodable readers!
Take a look at some of the great feedback from this resource:
"Students love the independence!"
"This is great! I love sending these home with my students to do with their parents each week!"
"This is a wonderful resource and kept my students engaged."
"Great way to have the students think about what they are reading in the decodables!"
"Perfect for centers!"
"Excellent for my comprehension center."
I have Decodable Reader Comprehension Questions for other units too!
