What educators are saying

I love having this resource during my comprehension lessons! Easy to use and helps me keep track of what questions I've asked and others I need to use more. Thank you.
This resource is so helpful! Sometimes it is hard to come up with new questions to ask students or you get in a habit of asking the same questions all the time. This helps keep your mind fresh!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Cathy said: "These cards printed off very nicely! I put them on a ring and away we went in my guided reading groups. It was nice to have a quick reference for asking different questions. I sometimes get into a rut and tend to ask the same type of questions."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Trudi said: "Excellent Resource! I love that it is print and go. I use them in my guided reading sessions and even story- Telling sessions. The questions are very accurate and do encourage critical thinking. Thank you!!
