I originally created a version of these cards way back in 2008 to help my Autistic students with reading comprehension. I noticed that giving these students a consistent visual cue, helped them with answering comprehension questions. I also noticed the cards benefited my general education students as well. In this packet, I have included both recall and higher level thinking comprehension questions. I have also updated the packet to included Close Reading Questions.
I send a black and white version of the cards home in each students' book baggie.
I found that the mini-comprehension cards increased home support. Parents found it easier to talk to their children about reading.
The large cards can be used for focus walls, anchor charts, Reader's Workshop, and/or Guided Reading.
Or you may want to make a ring of the mini cards for fast access during Guided Reading or Independent Reading conferences.
