The comprehension questions follow along the Benchmark Universe Curriculum (Benchmark Advanced) for fourth grade. This week's questions focus on many skills aligned to the teacher's edition for the first week of unit 9.
The skills practiced are: Identify Key Details and Main Idea, Analyze Cause and Effect Text Structure and Analyze How Reasons, Evidence Support Points in a Text, Read and Respond to Poetry, Identify Genre Features: Free Verse Poetry, Use Text Evidence to Compare and Contrast Texts on Similar Topics. There are also questions about the phonics skill for the week and vocabulary skills.
The questions created match the Benchmark Universe assessments for fourth grade. There are also short response questions to help students practice finding text evidence to support their answer. I have included an answer key at the end of the document that includes examples of the short responses.
