Text dependent questions and flashcards for the story or read aloud "Scaredy Mouse" written by Alan MacDonald. Text dependent questioning encourages higher order thinking in the classroom. Students are invited to use prior knowledge and comprehension skills to obtain a deeper understanding of the story.
The flashcards were created to print, laminate and use over and over again. Pass out a card to each student before reading the story. The student will review the question and pay close attention to the story and will listen for their question to be answered. At that time, the student will be able to ask the question for other students to answer requiring the students to be the facilitator during read aloud discussions.
