Reading Discussions

Found in: group discussions; reading comprehension

Students in my first and second grade literacy groups enjoy discussions about the books they've taken home and read. A reader shares his/her story. Peers use 'question bubbles' with the words - who, what, how, etc as a guide to ask questions in sentence form. This assessment lets me know how well students have read, listened, and understood a story or activity. Everyone is encouraged to speak in complete sentences. As the year progresses, students write questions in the bubbles for group discussion. This activity encourages reading and develops thinking skills.
