Reading Strategies and Reading Comprehension Cueing Cards

01 March 2011
I have jazzed up my Reading Strategy Posters and My Reading Comprehension Cueing Cards. These are my best selling items on TPT. Check them out by clicking the links below.  Please, note that both of these products are included in my Guided Reading Resources packet. Click {here} to check it out.

Reading Comprehension Cueing Cards
I created these reading comprehension cueing cards because I noticed some of my students were great at decoding texts but struggled with comprehension.  These cards provide students with a visual comprehension cue.  These cards should be utilized during guided reading, shared reading, and read aloud books.  The questions on these cards ask students to apply literal, inferential, and/or critical thinking.  Please, note that not all of the cards work with all texts.  For example, a non-fiction book will not have a “problem” and “solution.” 

Mini-Reading Comprehension Cueing Cards
The mini-cards are meant to be placed on a binder ring and to be used during at home reading and independent reading time (D.E.A.R. Time).  My students keep five books on their independent reading level inside a plastic bag.  This bag contains the books, a sight word ring, and the ring of mini-reading comprehension cueing cards

Reading Strategy Posters
Reading Strategy Posters should be reviewed at least once a week with each reading group.  Beginning readers, those on levels A through C, should refer to the “What Good Beginning Readers Do” poster.  Levels C and up should refer to the “Reading Strategies Poster.”  I have included different versions of the “Reading Strategies Poster” because some districts use the Wilson Fundations program, which encourages students to “tap-out” words instead of “sound out words.”    I have also included posters with “Remember to Finger Point” on the bottom.  Please note, that finger pointing is used to teach students one-to-one correspondence.  Once this has been mastered, students should be encouraged to sweep their finger under the words or use a bookmark/highlighter to keep their eyes focused on the text.  Gradually, even that should be faded away and students should be encouraged to track the text without any visual aides.
