Reading Comprehension Checks for April

After completing the Comprehension Check, students can color a star on the Reading Comprehension and Fluency Tracker. Each month will have 20 different Comprehension Checks with 5 Comprehension Questions. These simple comprehension questions provide students with an opportunity to look back at the text and using complete sentences. This option is more effective than the "fill in the bubble" method. In addition, students will use the color code to look back in the text (text evidence) and highlight the answers.

This packet includes comprehension checks with and without the crayons.

The Comprehension Questions allow students to work on:
-Making Inferences
-On the surface questions
-Under the surface questions
-Rhyming

-Monitor Understanding 
and MORE!
