Do you need engaging and low prep 4th and 5th reading centers for identifying, describing and answering questions about story elements?

This reading center resource includes ten spinner centers for practicing identifying and describing story elements in a story, as well as answering other related questions.

The students will read the story. Then they will spin the spinner to answer questions related to the story elements that make up the story.

To “play” the center, the students will use a pencil and a paper clip to spin the spinner. When they spin a question the first time, they will answer the question. If/when they spin that question again, they will prove their answers with evidence from the text.

Answer keys and recording sheets are included for the centers.

Types of Questions:
1.) Each spinner includes these three prompts:
Describe the main character(s), or compare and contrast the characters.
What is the setting of the story?
What is the problem in the story? How is the problem solved?

2.) The other three questions are text-dependent and require the students to answer questions or prompts about the plot or the characters.
