Want a no-prep, standards-based novel study for reading comprehension to share with your third grade, fourth grade, or fifth grade students? Dragons in a Bag is a super read-aloud book, and you’ll be able to share it with your students right away with these printable, discussable comprehension questions!

Dragons in a Bag is a fun fantasy novel with an unusually diverse cast of characters. This tale of dragons, time travel, family, and an invisible man has been nominated for many state book awards. You will love sharing this magical adventure with your students, and these ready-to-go reading comprehension questions will structure your discussions about every chapter of the book.

Students may work individually or in small groups, and they may respond verbally or in writing to these questions. You have your whole novel study prepped and ready to go!

I think that it is incredibly important that we read whole books with our students, and I hope this product will make it easier for a busy teacher or librarian like you to share a great story with your class, from beginning to end!
