Question-Answer Relationship

This Question-Answer Relationship lesson plan also includes:

Questions are an essential component of reading comprehension; not just answering them, but asking them as well. This instructional activity starts by introducing young readers to the difference between literal questions and inferential questions, which require the use of prior knowledge. The children's book Hi! Fly Guy is then read aloud to the class, with the teacher occasionally pausing to record and discuss any questions students may have. Use this instructional activity to create posters describing literal and inferential questions that can be displayed in the classroom to support primary grade students with developing reading comprehension skills.
