PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you are looking for a new way to keep students engaged in reading informational text, these comprehension cards may be just what you need. This is a set of 32 cards designed to be used with informational text. You may choose to use the whole set of cards, or, if you are working on a particular skill, you can use just those cards.

Skills included are:

Visualizing
Text Features
Text Structure
Summarizing
Fact/Opinion
Compare/Contrast
Main Idea
Questioning
Connections
Inference
Author's Craft
Vocabulary
Author's Purpose

Here are some ways I have used these cards successfully in my own classroom.

1. Small group – with or without a teacher. Students read a portion of text, then draw a card. The student reads the card aloud and then follows the directions on the card.

2. Partner Read – Same as above, only with partners.

3. Independent Reading or Literacy Center – When students are assigned to read a portion of text independently, you can hand out as many cards to a student as you like. Have students respond in their Reading Response Journal. (Center student directions page included)

4. Literature Circles – Students have already read the text independently. The cards help the group discuss the reading.

5. Whole Class – As you read a book as a class, stop occasionally and draw a card. Choose a student to respond. (I like to use an online random name picker, this keeps students engaged as they might be next!)


7. Your own idea – I would love for you to let me know about the creative ways in which you have used these cards.
