Product Description
Questions to use with ANY TEXT! Thinking Questions is a tool designed for teachers to measure and assess their students’ reading progress. Using this assessment resource in your classroom will provide you with information in the following areas:

• Comprehension skills
• Metacognition strategies
• Guided Reading strategies
• Vocabulary
• Literacy RtI / Response to Intervention Strategies

**THINKING QUESTIONS can be used with ANY text, guided reader, article, poem, non-fiction, fiction, picture book, etc. ~ this is what makes it such an amazingly useful product!

I have included 4 different versions of the Thinking Questions. The versions differentiate for students in small group intervention and for students that need to be challenged in their thinking. You will also find color and black and white versions included in this download.

Especially great for students in need of reading intervention, you will also get my T.H.I.N.K. acronym posters. Please check out the preview for additional information on these.

In addition to the THINKING QUESTIONS, I added 25 fiction question cards that can be used with any fiction text. Instructions, a cover to place on a folder for centers, and student printables are included. There are also 25 non-fiction question cards with the same components as the fiction version.

Also included is a set of Marzano’s Thinking Question Stem mini-posters to either be displayed or kept in your student’s Interactive Reading Journals so they can refer back as needed. Total pages included: 52 pages. **This product is very homeschool friendly.
