  • Comprehension Visual Response Board – an “all in one” response board featuring WH questions, sequencing, main idea and key details, summarizing, and story elements (story grammar).

How I use these Comprehension Boards:

I recommend using these visual response boards in your small reading groups. I will insert two pages (back to back) into one dry erase sleeve. Students can respond by pointing, circling their answer with a dry erase marker, or even “covering up” their response using mini-erasers or other manipulatives. The writing pages could also be used for independent work or in centers.
