Nonfiction, Fiction, and Poetry Reading Comprehension Bundle | Digital and Print
When it comes to reading comprehension, I love using no-prep, targeted, skills-based practice. Find everything you need for your 4th graders to practice essential reading skills with this bundled set of short nonfiction passages, stories, and poems. These come in digital and printable versions and are perfect to use during a particular unit, for a passage-a-week practice all year long, or for end-of-year test review!
Save 20% by purchasing the bundle and receive all 3 sets:
Each set includes short, high-interest texts with comprehension questions that target a variety of reading skills and word analysis strategies. The texts are written for 4th graders, but will also work for many students in 3rd and 5th grade.
Each set includes 2 versions of the texts:
digital, self-checking task cards hosted on Boom Learning℠. These are completely online - no printing, cutting, or laminating. Students will practice TEI skills like drag-and-drop and selecting answer choices.
multiple-choice printable PDFs with one text per page AND bonus questions since I had extra room! Answer keys are included.
Please note that you need an account with Boom in order to use the digital task cards. Read to the end to learn more about Boom.
