I have been creating comprehension activities and questions for my guided reading groups that match the reading schemes we use in school (Also see my ORT resource post). The activities can be worked through idependentely or with an adult. \n\nI have used some great ideas from other wonderful TES Members and some I have created from scratch. Hopefully these will be help save someone else some time!
