Gamifying reading is one of my favorite ways to engage my students with reading skills and reading comprehension practice. Your students will love practicing their reading comprehension skills with these tic-tac-toe games!

Note: These are not as rigorous as my typical reading centers. These reading games work perfectly for 4th grade readers and 5th grade readers who could benefit from shorter stories and less rigorous questions. For example, the students are only asked to identify the point of view and not how it influences the story.

About the Fiction Tic-Tac-Toe Reading Comprehension Games

There are 12 fiction tic-tac-toe centers in this resource. Each center includes:

• A short fiction story

• Two tic-tac-toe games

About the Tic-Tac-Toe Games

  • There are two tic-tac toe games per story.
  • Each tic-tac-toe game has nine questions.
  • The questions for the first game for each center are the same and review a variety of reading skills, such as theme, setting, context clues, etc.
  • The second game is text-dependent and includes questions specific to the story.

Answer keys and optional recording sheets are included.

Accountability Suggestions:

• For accountability, you can have the students record the answers to the questions that they answer on the optional recording sheet.

• Another option is to draw stars (or another mark) on the questions that you want the students to record the answers for. The students can play the games like normal and then go back an answer the questions with stars on them.
