These passages have been altered from the earlier ones to reflect the change in the test.
The following are 10 short high interest short reading passages and questions that mimic the state assessment.
These activities can help you teach your students how to determine the main ideas, use appropriate vocabulary, and make inferences. Students are also required to use context clues and prior knowledge to answer questions.
These questions are especially designed for 3rd grade students especially those taking the Mississippi assessment. However, they can be used with students in other states and with older students.
