Comprehension Cards – Within, Beyond, & About

These comprehension cards follow the Guided Reading levels A–E questioning of Within, Beyond, and About the text. I created these using the Fountas & Pinnell reading levels that practice Retelling, Predicting, Making Connections, Synthesizing, Inferring, Analyzing, and Critiquing. They can be used in small group reading or at centers. Color code each level on cardstock, laminate, and place on a ring. Comprehension questioning made easy!
