all about insects long pin 2My son is now a reader!  We have been working on independent reading and reading out loud throughout the summer. Check out my FREE independent reading incentives bookmarks for your own kids. I wanted to make him some reading comprehension task cards that also worked on vocabulary and writing.  Then, I thought “What if I could make some reading comprehension task cards that I can also use with my speech students next year?”Perfect!  Now, I just needed a non-fiction topic…….

My son loves learning about bugs…..My speech students LOVE bugs, so that’s how this set began its creation! This upcoming year, I will be back at the elementary site, but I think these listenting and reading comprehension task cards could be used with upper elementary/middle school for students working at a younger grade level.

listening and reading comprehension task cards

Great non-fiction passages to work on reading fluency and comprehension with a bug theme.

The activities in this set are perfect for independent work, can be used as a whole group lesson or as a literacy/language center. What I love the most about these cards is that there are QR codes that link to REAL LIFE photos of the bugs!!  Pretty cool, huh!?

There are 12 non-fiction passages including 12 task cards with comprehension questions to answer about the passage.  I laminated mine, so that the students can use with a dry erase marker and I can use them over and over again. Plus, I included hands on worksheet booklets to incorporate more learning after reading the passages.  Skills included: comparing/contrasting, vocabulary, adjectives, drawing/writing task and a writing page.

QR codes for insect task cardsIncluded in this set are some fun magnifying cards with QR codes to links to youtube videos that have more information about the bugs the students read about.  What kid doesn’t love using that QR code app?
