    My partner and I (I'm sharing a contract this year) started using a reading comprehension activity from the positive engagement project called "Comprehension Shuffle" this week. We spent the weekend getting all of the comprehension cards all set up and started with the kids on Monday and today......what a difference? It gives the kids such a focus as they are reading and it makes it FUN....yes FUN! My entire class asked me today if we were going to play that reading game from yesterday, even my lowest kids.:D If you are using the comprehension shuffle, I'd love to know how often you use it. It seems to me that I could use it every day, but I'm not sure if I should.

    If you haven't used it, I strongly suggest you check it out, because it is really a great way to make reading fun and engaging!:thumb:

    I started using this last week and have told a bunch of people. I absolutely love it (as do my students). We don't do it everyday, but when we do, it makes a difference. They are so much more involved with their reading it's amazing.

    Love this! This goes perfectly with our Daily 5 and CAFE strategies. I can't wait to try it out...

    Sounds interesting!
    Please explain exactly how Comprehension Shuffle works, and give examples of what questions you have on your cards.

    I just googled this, and while I am unsure about the Comprehension Struggle, I will be using some of the math games I found there. Thanks!

    I tried the cards with my 4th grade daughters. They enjoyed it and were able to figure out what everything was asking. Not sure about my 2nd/3rd graders, but worth a try.

    Just started today

    I just started the "shuffle" with my kids today. It was a lot of fun. I only used 5 of the cards, but it did make the reading funner for them. I'll take that. I plan on introducing a new/different comprehension skill every week. I doubt I'll use all of the cards, but a good lot of them will be used. I love that site!!!!
