Bonus- the topics are all interesting and kid approved!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Teresa N. says, "I like that this product has interesting fiction and non-fiction passages included. The comprehension questions and vocabulary targets are at the perfect level for my students. And I love that there is a short writing response for each of the texts as I'm trying to incorporate more writing tasks in all of our work together."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A Little Fun in Fourth says, "I love how quick, simple and effective these reading comprehension cards are! With COVID my students are needing to still build their independence and I find that these are perfect for that and the students feel like they can actually answer these questions effectively on their own."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Nancy P. says, "I am using this resource for my proficient readers to support them in reading comprehension. They work on these activities while I am providing small group reading instruction to other students. The stories are interesting and the students are able to work on them independently."
