These are reading literature playing cards. You can use these cards in a number of ways. When students read a text, I always have them highlight and annotate on the text. Students highlight text for justification and annotate on the side. These annotations include inferences, figurative language, unknown words, key ideas, etc. To play with the cards, I have students paired up in groups of four. When the student has 2 identical cards, the student will answer that question to the group when it is his/her turn. The group will discuss the answer and determine whether or not it is correct. If another group member can answer the question correctly he or she will keep the pair. The person with the most pairs wins the card game. I play similar to go fish. If a student does not have a pair in his or her deck, he can ask a group member or go fish. These questions are based on the literature common core standards.
