What's a Comprehension Quest™?
A Comprehension Quest™ is a fun way to get students excited about practicing reading comprehension! Even reading passages! Starting off with the hook video, students learn they have a quest to complete.

The hook video comes in wmv and MP4 format so you have two options for sharing.

If you can't share either format at school, its okay! The quest is also explained on a printable quest  sheet!

In this edition, students must figure out where the leprechaun hid a pot of gold!

Students will read 6 passages and complete standards aligned reader response activities. Each passage has 2-4 options for reader response sheets. That way you can differentiate your instruction! The standards covered range from second through fifth grade.

After each activity, they will earn a clue that will get them one step closer to solving the quest.

Students will use the process of elimination when they are given clues to help solve the quest. This chart helps them figure out the final answer.

The clues help students eliminate possible locations on their chart. After the last clue they will be left with only one location!

Once they are finished with all six passage, activities, and have figured out where the gold is, they turn in their guess to you. If they are correct, they earn a fun certificate to color while everyone finishes!

Here's a look at the topics and which passages cover each standard.

You can really have a lot of fun with a Comprehension Quest! Consider decorating your classroom for St. Patrick's Day. You can get fake gold coins and scatter them throughout your classroom. You can also get a leprechaun hat and print out the note from the leprechaun. I got some great St. Patrick's day accessories for the quest at Target in the dollar spot!

Search YouTube for "Irish and Celtic Music" and choose a video that plays like white noise in the background while your students work. The more excited you are about the quest, the more excited your students will be! They will feed off of your energy and excitement!
