READING LITERATURE Task Card Tool Kit for the Middle Grades: Above and Beyond Comprehension Questions Task Cards are great tool to incorporate into your ELA classroom. These task cards are designed for student use at the completion of a novel covering READING LITERATURE 1-7 and 9 for grades 4-6.

This Reading Literature Tool Kit includes:
• 8 half-page task cards covering RL standards 1-7, and 9
• a student answer document
• Clear directions on how to best utilize with students

While comprehension and reader response questions are great tools to measure student understanding, task cards give more of an opportunity for students to reflect on and analyze their thinking after completing a novel.

To get started: copy task cards, laminate, and students can work.

Uses for the READING LITERATURE Task Card Tool Kit for the Middle Grades:

1. Team Time: Utilize these cards as STATIONS in your classroom upon completing a whole class novel. Students can work in groups and rotate around to each of the 8 stations as they work to complete each task independently, but sharing ideas.

2. Friend to the End: Partner students and have them work to complete each task together.

3. All in All: Give each student the 8-Task Cards and have them complete each card independently, then discuss/share responses in small groups or with a partner.

4. Student Free Choice: Students select only a few Task Cards to complete.

5. Teacher Knows Best: Teacher chooses how to utilize these best in your ELA classroom.
