Do you need to hold your students accountable for their silent reading time? These cards can be used with any novel or short story your students are reading.
We are highly encouraged to have the students complete sustained silent reading (SSR) at least once a week in our classroom. I used to have a hard time with this because many of my students used to “fake” read. They would stare at the pages (and then turn them occasionally) and when SSR was over, they would smile and put their book back on the shelf. If this sounds like your classroom, then these cards will definitely help with this.
Once I told my students that they had to complete an assignment after they read, more of them started reading.
There are a total of 29 task cards. They ask questions about literary elements as well as grammar questions.
