My text-dependent questions are written in alignment with the Common Core State Standards for reading literature and are specifically written for this story--"Spring" by Arnold Lobel. My questions are intentionally designed to help students return to the text in a logical progression for answers. Each question indicates which Common Core State Standard is being addressed, includes a referenced page number from the story, pair-sharing opportunities and sample correct answers for easy teacher reference. A reproducible reading comprehension worksheet is included. TDQs and close-reading worksheets are available for the entire chapter book, "Frog and Toad are Friends" in our store.
