An active and engaging way of teaching comprehension. The photographs below should help with understanding these instructions.
Each table in the classroom will have a comprehension mat on it with a comprehension question. There will be a different question on each table. The same question is repeated all around each individual mat so that children can read the question on all sides of the table. Each mat contains an artefact (often the same ones from the props bag used in the prediction phase).
With a partner, children visit each table in turn; read the question; discuss the answer and record the answer.
At the end of the lesson, the class can be gathered together to discuss the answers.
