Product Description
Get students talking about Literature using academic vocabulary by answering concise, on-target discussion questions. Differentiated Question Cards reinforce CCSS vocabulary and elicit a student response that addresses specific standards for Literature. Use this resource in multi-age/multi-level settings such as reading groups, literature circles, student-led discussions, differentiated homework, or a family literacy night.

Benefits for Students:
• The differentiated question cards provide a visual “vertical alignment” and the opportunity for students to monitor their own progress of Literature standards.
• Discussion questions facilitate comprehension without the stress of crafting a written response.
• English Learners are given the opportunity to expand their academic Spanish vocabulary and practice reading comprehension even before they are proficient in English.

Benefits For Parents:
• The easy-to-understand format provides a visual “vertical alignment” and the opportunity for parents to monitor their child’s progress of Literature standards.
• The discussion prompts facilitates parents’ understanding of Literature standards and provides a practical tool that can immediately be used to at home with multiple ages to promote reading comprehension at the appropriate challenge level.
• Both the English and Spanish translations communicate the rigor of standards and use consistent CCSS academic vocabulary.
• Once printed on cardstock, the question cards can be hung from a binder ring which will help keep it from becoming lost in a pile of papers.

• 73 discussion questions/prompts total: 3rd grade (18), 4th grade (19), 5th grade (17), and 6th grade (19).
• 6 reproducible pages in English (Cover, Note to Parents, and 9 half-page question cards)
