It's a lot easier to get fourth graders to pay attention to a passage if they're interested in it. This fun article about SpongeBob Squarepants test students' knowledge of the following Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills (TEKS):
4.18A(ii) create brief compositions that include supporting sentences with simple facts, details, and explanations
4.15C revise drafts for coherence, organization, use of simple and compound sentences, and audience
4.21C (ii) (S) recognize and use punctuation marks including quotation marks 1
4.15D edit drafts for grammar, mechanics, and spelling (using a teacher-developed rubric)
4.22C spell commonly used homophones (e.g., there, they’re, their; two, too, to)
4.20C use complete simple and compound sentences with correct subject-verb agreement
4.20B use the complete subject and the complete predicate in a sentence
Includes the STAAR-formatted passage, questions, an answer key (the answers spell the name of the creator of SpongeBob for easy grading), a set of large "around-the-room" station questions, and a colored key version of the around-the-room station version. The teacher can display the question, talk about it with the students, and then just hit the forward arrow on the PDF to "reveal" the correct answer.
