This genre specific resource contains over 80 questions and reader response prompts to use for comprehension checks after the study of or reading different genres or writing forms - fictional narrative, personal narrative, informative text, persuasive or opinion writing, and poetry. They can be used for reader response prompts, guided reading groups, after read alouds, during whole-class shared reading activities, for partner discussions after independent reading, or for language centers. Comprehension questions and prompts satisfy common core standards for Reading Standards for Literature (1-10), and Reading Standards for Informational Text (1-10).

There are 5 different groups of questions and prompts - one group for each of:

• fictional narrative

• personal narrative

• informative text

• persuasive writing

• poetry

Each group of questions will make its own fan. You can use a particular fan when studying a particular genre or form, or use different fans to reinforce reading comprehension and literary elements throughout the year. You could also group all the questions together on a binder clip circle and hang near your desk for easy access during reading activities.

I have also included a sheet of blank frames for each literary element so you can include your own questions. These frames are not editable, so you will have to write in your added questions.

The question sheets should be printed out on cardstock or on regular paper and laminated for extra durability. Cut out the individual questions and punch a small hole in the end of each question. Questions can then be put together with a brass fastener or a binder ring to keep them together.

This resource is included in my Question Fan Bundle for Reading which contains 6 of my Question Fan Resources for Reading at a discounted price.

You may also be interested in my Genre Concept Posters which pair up perfectly with these question fans.
