This product contains comprehension questions for each of the decodable readers that come with the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Journeys (2014 edition
) curriculum for UNIT 5. 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 one 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! Enjoy!
This product has been visually refreshed with new fonts and borders, and has been condensed into one PDF document!
