'Here' Comprehension Question Stems

Reading Comprehension

'Here Questions' are those where you can physically place your finger on the answer i.e. 'The answer is here!' They are sometimes refered to as 'low level' or 'knowledge based' questions.

Here are three pages of question stems that I use in my reading sessions to improve reading comprehension..

How to use this guide:

- when running a Guided Reading Session have these question stems next to you and formulate appropriate questions as you see a context.

- hand these question stems to your group and ask them to, 'Pretend that you are a nasty, nasty teacher who lives only to make children suffer. Use these questions stems & try your hardest to 'stump' them but also improve their comprehension of what is read' - You might be surprised how well your students rise to this challenge :)

- Have other groups answer the questions.

- Perhaps you could have the children make their questions into a crossword puzzle using Crossword Generating Software.
