This product contains close reading comprehension questions that correlate with the Scott Foresman Reading Street 2013 Common Core Curriculum for Third Grade. Unit 3 contains 5 different texts: How Do You Raise a Raisin?, Pushing Up the Sky, Seeing Stars, A Symphony of Whales, and Around One Cactus, and this file has close reading comprehension questions for each text. You can use these pages to assess student comprehension of texts that meet third grade text complexity requirements along with myriad Common Core skills for Literature, Informational Text, Writing and Language standards. These close reading questions are original, so teachers can ask the close reading questions found in the teacher's manual in addition to the ones found in this document without repeating any questions. You can have your students complete these pages for independent work, homework or in cooperative groups or partners. I hope you enjoy this product and I look forward to your feedback!
