Tip: Question Signs
How do I do it?
Make signs with paint stir sticks and cardstock with questions glued on top of the stick like, favorite part? main character? problem? etc. or buy a set of reading comprehension boards. Pass one sign out to a group and they can answer when it is their turn or have a small group use the whole set of signs. Print the downloadable on cardstock to help make the signs, adding questions for your unit of study or use it as a recording sheet where students can record the answers to the questions post-reading.
Variations & Extensions
Signs can be questions related to anything you are studying or practicing. For example, for study of historical events: What time period?; Most important event?; Most important historical figure? etc. or in math: How many degrees?; Name the geometric figure?; Name the type of angle?; Area? etc.
