This center resource contains eight reading centers to review and practice describing, comparing and contrasting, and answering other questions related to story elements.

Included are eight games, each consisting of one fiction story and a game board with text-dependent questions.
*Games 1-4 – focus primarily on general story element questions

*Games 5-6 – also include specific plot element questions

*Games 7-8 – also include more questions that require comparing and contrasting story elements

There are a few options for using these centers:
Option 1: Print the passage for the students and give them to them at the beginning of the week. Have the students read the passage prior to going to the center. Then when they come to the center, they are ready to play the “game” and answer the questions. The passage could even be read whole group or sent home for homework.

Option 2: This option works well if the students will have a chance to go to the center 3 times a week. The first 1 or 2 days the students will read the passage and discuss. Then on the 2nd or 3rd day, the students will “play” the game.

I have also included several options for how the students will play the game for you to choose from as well as options for assessing the students. You can check these out as well as a closer look at the centers in the preview file.
