This is the fascinating story of Balto with complex comprehension questions written with the same question stems used on the Grade 3 Smarter Balanced, Florida, and Ohio Department of Education practice tests. This packet also includes a vocabulary word work activity to prepare students for decoding difficult multisyllabic words. Students divide vocabulary words into syllables and then play a game where they sort the syllables into the 7 syllable types.
