Product Description

This resource contains 12 nonfiction reading passages. Beneath each passage, there are six multiple choice comprehension questions. My main purpose for creating these passages was to construct an engaging 3rd grade reading comprehension activity that featured standardized test preparation. I decided that the best way to make it engaging was to add a competitive element where students are striving to earn the winning score.

Detailed directions are included for how to play this game. Basically, each player has a passage and a die. After reading a passage, students independently roll a die and answer the numbered questions that matches the number rolled. They record a tally for each time they roll the die. When complete, they check their answers together. Then, each student follows the directions at the bottom of the page to determine his/her score. The student(s) with the lowest score wins!

The directions work for two people playing the game against each other (perhaps at a reading center), a small group of students playing the game (perhaps as a small group activity that is being monitored by a teacher), or a whole class activity.

The skills targeted in this resource include:

  • Main Idea (11)
  • Context Clues (12)
  • Citing Text Evidence (12)
  • Text Features (8)
  • Affixes (8)
  • Text Structures (5)
  • Cause and Effect (3)
  • Drawing Conclusions (3)
  • Synonyms and Antonyms (3)
  • Making Inferences (2)
  • Author's Purpose (2)
  • Sequence (1)
  • Compound Words (1)
  • Compare and Contrast (1)
