4th Grade Comprehension Task Cards are an informational and literature standards-based resource. Each Common Core standard comes with 5 stories and then 5 follow-up questions for comprehension. They come with recording sheets as well, for the students to then write their comprehension answers on. The task cards fit 4 to a page, so you can print, cut, and put on a binder ring.
Additionally, this resource now includes a digital component. The comprehension task cards are now created in Google Slides and you can get access to the digital versions on page 5 of the PDF.
What are Comprehension Task Cards?
Comprehension Task Cards are the newest resource for my ELA line. They are STANDARDS-BASED with 5 stories per standard. The 5 stories also have 5 questions for comprehension so 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 ELA resources for all Reading domains and all standards within. These are great resources to add into your ELA block!
Each standard (17 standards):
-5 questions for each story
-Numbered for easy organization
-Question sheets for assessment
(RI4.9 and RL4.9 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!
