4th Grade Informational Comprehension Task Cards



4th Grade Informational Comprehension Task Cards are a standards-based resource. Each standard comes with 5 stories and then 5 follow-up questions for comprehension. They come with recording sheets as well, for the students to 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, there is now a digital component included in this resource. 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.*

Each standard (9 standards):
-5 texts
-5 questions for each story
-Numbered for easy organization
-Question sheets for assessment
(RI4.9 is 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!)

They go hand-in-hand with my ELA products that you may already own. I have 4th grade ELA resources for all Reading domains and all standards within. These are certainly a great resource to add into your ELA block!
