4th Grade Literature Comprehension Task Cards



4th Grade Literature Comprehension Task Cards are a literature standards-based resource. Each informational 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, this resource now includes a digital component. The comprehension task cards are now created in Google Slides. You can get access to the digital versions on page 5 of the PDF.*

Each standard (8 standards):
-5 texts
-5 questions for each story
-Numbered for easy organization
-Question sheets for assessment
(RL4.9 is set up 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 crtainly a great resource to add into your ELA block!
