Book Companions for Spring


Support ALL learners in your classroom with these Spring comprehension response boards.

Students can respond through picture and text support while asking and answering questions based on the following read aloud books:

  • Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens
  • The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Pett and Rubinstein
  • Duck on a Bike by David Shannon
  • Strictly No Elephants by Lisa Mantchev

Comprehension support included for each read aloud:

  • Teacher Questions – 20+ questions based on the text, mentor sentence, and story vocabulary all on one page with room for data notes
  • Comprehension Picture Board – story vocabulary with both picture/text
  • Mentor Sentence Writing Board – writing response page with mentor sentence and word bank (story vocabulary)
  • Picture Word Bank Writing Board – writing response page using vocabulary (picture/text) from book
  • 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.
