These Reading Response Task Cards are versatile and functional! Designed with the 7 Key Comprehension Strategies in mind, each task card addresses a different comprehension strategy with a thought-provoking prompt. The prompts are designed to be used in the way that suits your needs best - either as a center, reading group conversation starter, whole class discussion of a read-aloud, writing prompt, drawing prompt (for younger learners), activity following a guided reading group, etc.
There are seven comprehension strategies, each with 10 task cards (for a total of 70 different cards!). The 7 comprehension topics are:
*Making Connections/Prior Knowledge
*Monitoring for Meaning
Both fiction and non-fiction topics are covered.
A page outlining all the prompts are given for each strategy (7 pages) so you can keep all the cards organized and strategically choose the ones to give your students.
The task cards are designed to fit on 4x6 index cards, if you choose to mount them & laminate them that way.
*This "Color Me Edition" was created for those teachers not fortunate enough to have unlimited access to color printers. I know ink is precious (& expensive!), and my belief is that everyone should have access to these materials. Different than just printing in grey scale, I have removed the "fill" on most shapes so a lot less ink will be used in printing.
