The Big Idea
For grades 1-3 Reading literature and reading informational text are given equal weight in the new Common Core State Standards. This set of 40 cards includes high-interest, leveled non-fiction passages that help prepare students to be successful in reading and understanding this type of material. The content is cross-curricular – drawn from science, social studies, and math – and each passage includes four multiple-choice questions plus a suggested writing extension activity. For use with the Hot Dots pen (sold separately).
