Have you started conferring in your classroom during your reading block or reader's workshop? It has become one of my favorite things to do and is a great tool to set goals with students. I had a hard time creating good questions on the fly, so I did some research and put them all together in this product. I divided them up by topics, so it's easier for the teacher to choose appropriate prompts and reading goals for students.
The prompt topics include:
• plot and setting
• theme and idea
• main idea
Use these during independent reading conferences or small groups to guide your students' thinking about the texts they are reading!
