Asking questions is one of several reading comprehension strategies practice in primary grades. This post has an asking questions product and a freebie as well. Asking questions before, during, and after reading is a strategy used to help improve reading comprehension and should become a lifelong skill for improving retention of text. Many students read quickly and need to be taught this strategy to help them learn to read for meaning. The free pages are included in the free preview.
