Use these Independent Reading Challenge Cards to promote your students’ interactions with text.
Students pick a card prior to reading their book. As they read, they engage with the text while looking for the answer to their question. I like to have kids work with a partner- they read different books and after 10 minutes discuss their questions/answers. Alternately, they could read the same book and answer the questions together.
12 Fiction Question Cards
11 Non Fiction Question Cards
Note: Using the cards repeatedly will create a habit in your students that teaches them to engage with text.
