These reading response questions and prompts encourage engaging, focused dialogue for reading buddies! Each of the 30 Talk Tents included contains 6 thought-provoking questions students use to guide their discussions. That makes 12 questions and prompts for buddies to choose from before, during, and after reading! There are more than 50 fiction questions and prompts included, making each Talk Tent different.
How to use Talk Tents:
1. Copy the Talk Tents on card stock and cut them out. (Lamination is not recommended as they will slide around and lose their shape.)
2. When it is time for buddy reading, Talk Tents are passed out.
3. Students set the Talk Tents on the floor or table between them and use them to spark meaningful discussion about books they are reading.
4. Talk Tents are also great to use during Guided Reading to engage students and check for understanding.
