The comprehension questions follow along the Benchmark Universe Curriculum (Benchmark Advanced) for third grade. This week's questions focus on three skills aligned to the teacher's edition for the first week of unit 7. The stories for this unit switch back and forth between literature and informational text. The skills practiced are: summarize, sequence, main idea and details, inferences, and compare and contrast. There are also questions about the phonics skill for the week, as well as finding meaning of unknown words using context clues. The questions created match the Benchmark Universe assessments for third grade, along with some questions similar to the second grade tests for lower level questioning. There are also short response questions to help students practice finding text evidence to support their answer, as well as some thinking maps to help guide students to answer their questions. I have included an answer key at the end of the document that includes examples of the short responses.
