  1. This is wonderful! Thanks for sharing! Would you mind sharing what other books you used for the intriguing first pages?

  2. This is a great interactive idea! Would you mind sharing the titles of the eight books you used and maybe a sample of one of the sets of questions you wrote? Thanks!!! 🙂

  3. What fabulous resources!!! I just bought both sets of your fiction and non-fiction task cards! They will be great for review and practice for my kiddos before the big test and wonderful to use next year:) (Unless I clicked wrong, I think both your links lead to the fiction only…I had to search in your shop to find your non-fiction..just fyi:) ) The hallway idea is a wonderful one:) Thank you so much for sharing:)

  4. I love your blog! You always have such great ideas! That is why I am nominating you for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Check it out here: Sunshine Blogger Award

  5. What a great way to review for open-ended testing! And thanks for adding the books and questions you used. It's going to save so much time.

  6. I love these ideas, Mary! That anchor chart is perfect! We spend SO much time going over literal vs. inferential questions (like seriously it feels like half of the year), but these 8 fiction types are SO important! I appreciate the mentor text and question ideas! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  7. I love this!! Perfect way to review all the elements in order to prepare for the upcoming tests!!!! I can't seem to get the link to the foldable to open anything, though. Could you please check it? Thanks and I look forward to more of your great ideas!

  8. I'm a first year teacher and have loved your blogs and products all year! Thanks so much! I have interest in using the Comprehension Quick activity with my 5th graders for our state test review. Do you think it is age appropriate?

  9. Hi Mary,
    I loved the comprehension quickies so much that I asked our librarian to order them for me. I have a question though. What pages did you photocopy? Is it the first page of each book? Thanks so much for such a wonderful resource. I also ordered the fiction task cards and the kids love using them.

    1. Hi Sharon,

      Yes! I copy just the first page of each book. We do end up reading them the entire way through, though! They are excellent books.

      🙂 Mary
