4th Grade RL Literature Digital Passages



These 4th Grade RL Literature Digital Passages are standards-based activities for students to use when focusing on literature or fiction standards. These are perfect for Google Classroom because they’re made in Google Slides! Students will read the standards-based passages, annotate their text, then answer comprehension questions about the text and the standard. They are all Common-Core standards-based passages for fourth grade students. There are a total of 55 passages for fourth graders to use with literature or fiction texts.

Keep in mind that these passages are a digital version of the passages that come from my non-digital ELA units. They’ve been reformatted so that they work in Google Classroom.

These texts have been professionally leveled by Lexile. The scores are in the top right-hand corner of each passage.
