This fantastic set of reading comprehension cards encourage your children to think about and review the story they're reading while enabling you to assess how well they understand the story. Features a series of questions such as "What is the story about?" and "Is this fiction or non-fiction?" Have them use the cards as prompts for independent writing activities, or as discussion starters in small groups or as a class.
