What are Comprehension Task Cards?
Comprehension Task Cards are the newest resource for my growing ELA line. They are STANDARDS-BASED! Each standard has 5 stories. The 5 stories also have 6 questions for comprehension. That means there are 45 different passages in RI and 40 passages in RL! They come with recording sheets, as well. The task cards fit 4 to a page, so you can print, cut, and put on a binder ring. They go hand-in-hand with my ELA products that you may already own. I have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade ELA resources for all Reading domains, Reading Foundations domains, and all standards within. These are a great resource to add into your ELA block!

Each standard (17 standards):
-5 texts
-6 questions for each story
-Numbered for easy organization
-Question sheets for assessment
(RI1.9, RL1.5, and RL1.9 are set up a bit differently. There are 2 texts [each 2 pages] and only 4 questions since one of the stories takes up 2 task card slots!)

So…. 5 texts for 17 standards is 85 passages!
