3rd Grade Comprehension Task Cards LITERATURE



3rd Grade Comprehension Task Cards LITERATURE are the newest resource for my growing ELA line. They are all STANDARDS-BASED! Each standard has 5 stories. The 5 stories also have 6 questions for comprehension. 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.

Each standard (8 standards):
-5 stories
-6 questions for each story
-Numbered for easy organization
-Question sheets for assessment
(RL3.9 is set up a bit differently. There are 2 stories [each 2 pages] and only 4 questions since one of the stories takes up 2 task card slots!)

So, there are 40 passages in all!

This resource is included in a Reading bundle for 3rd grade. Save big money when buying this product with the Informational set, too.
