This card set follows a before, during, and after reading model and is intended
to be used with a fiction picture book. The primary focus of this card set is on characters, setting, plot, and theme. The cards are set up to be used by two readers. Partner 1 will pose a question first and then partner 2 will respond. Then partner 2 will ask a question followed by partner 1 responding. It would be helpful to the students if you preview your book selection and tell them which on pages the cards would work best. The student responses are set up in sentence frames to help encourage more conversation during their partner reading time. For best results, model how to use the card set using a read aloud.
