Questioning - Comprehension Strategy

Now we are focusing on the comprehension strategy questioning. We are asking questions before, during, and after reading. A few of my favorite books to reinforce this strategy are...

Charlie Anderson by Barbara Abercrombie. It's a cute story that will get your students questioning. Wednesday's Surprise by Even Bunting has an ending that many of your students might not see coming. A lot of Eve Bunting's books work well to model the questioning strategy, although many are more appropriate for upper elementary school students.

 Before reading a book, my students look at the cover and the title and write down some questions they have before reading the book. Click here for a copy of this, one with lines, one without lines.

Having the question words at the top of the page, will assist students with writing their questions. Click here for a free copy.
