Sally Orcutt and Kristi Ruggieri partnered to create opportunities for students to respond to literature in the third grade National Geographic Reach for Reading Common Core Program. The "Two Old Potatoes" comprehension questions are aligned with the Common Core Standards which are stated before the questions. This will be part of a bundle for all the literature in Unit 3 week 1 to help you monitor the comprehension skills of your students. It will help you determine which students are understanding the text and which students need more support and instruction. Answering these open response questions will give students opportunities to practice for state testing.
