Help your students conquer reading comprehension with these handy cards. This pack includes 20 comprehension cards that address a variety of strategies including:
- Main idea
- Predict and confirm
- Asking questions about texts
- Retelling the story
and much more!
These comprehension cards have been designed so that you can use them in multiple ways, but I thought I would share with you how I use them at school....
After printing, laminating and cutting the cards out, I place them on a craft ring so that each child has their very own superhero set that they can use during reading sessions.
Each card has a number between 1 and 20. Each week students are told which cards we are focusing on. Then as they are doing their reading activities, they write the answers down in their reading activities book. This is a great way to ensure the students are accountable and that they are actually practising strategies while they are reading to themselves, listening to reading or when they are reading to someone.
We also give them to classroom helpers who help with reading, as a guide for them to know what to ask the students.
