Reading Comprehension 10 Minute Drills were designed as an activity to quickly access whether or not the student can demonstrate understanding or mastery of a given reading skill. This activity will last for one month. There are 20 short paragraphs followed by one question on each card. The cards cover reading skills and some examples of figurative language. They can be used to start your morning or to end your day. This task can best be used with grades 5 - 9. I did not include answers, since many of them can vary.
