Do you find yourself constantly struggling to generate meaningful questions on the spot during whole or small group instruction? I’ve gathered 96 questions stems at six different levels to help vary your questions.

The questions are 2.75″ x 4.25″ cards – the perfect size to put on a binder ring! Each question level is marked with a different color. I’ve also included optional dividers to put in between the question levels to help you stay organized. I suggest printing these on cardstock and laminating the cards for durability.

Do you have questions you want to add? I’ve included a blank template for you to add and print your own question stems!

    Questions were very handy to have during small group. Though I used this with 2nd graders in school, as a reading teacher I can adapt and use it for grades 3 -5. Thank you for making this editable.
