RI.3.1 Worksheets, Workbooks, Lesson Plans, and Games

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.3.1

:
"Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers."

Our Take:While reading, third graders should ask and answer the “W” questions: who, what, where, when, why. Kids practise this skill through both fiction and nonfiction reading comprehension exercises.

These worksheets and lesson plans can help students practise this Common Core State Standards skill.
