3rd Grade - Reading Ready© Expository Bundle


Customers who used our 3rd grade STAAR WARS Reading Task Cards loved them, and many emailed us asking us for more. So we listened! But instead of creating more STAAR review sets, we thought it would be even better to have task card sets that could be used WHILE you’re teaching, instead of just to review afterward. This way you can measure learning as you go. So, we decided to create task card sets for every TEKS Readiness Standard for reading, math, and writing. We will have 2 sets available for each TEKS Readiness Standard, a basic set and an advanced set, which allows the teacher to assess learning at various learning stages, making them perfect for differentiation.

When you purchase this BIG BUNDLE, you get all of our Basic & Advanced READING READY 3rd Grade Understanding & Analysis of Informational Texts Task Cards – 10 total sets!!


These READING READY task card sets focus on the five TEKS Readiness Standards for 3rd grade expository texts:

•analyze, make inferences and draw conclusions about the author's purpose in cultural, historical, and contemporary contexts and provide evidence from the text to support their understanding (3.12)
•identify the details or facts that support the main idea (3.13A)
•draw conclusions from the facts presented in text and support those assertions with textual evidence (3.13B)
•identify explicit cause and effect relationships among ideas in texts (3.13C)
•use text features (e.g., bold print, captions, key words, italics) to locate information and make and verify predictions about contents of text (3.13D)

The 5 BASIC sets help your students practice & apply their understanding of the expository skills listed below at a simpler, basic level with shorter texts and fewer answer choices, while the 5 ADVANCED sets feature rigorous, higher-level thinking questions with longer texts and more answer choices, making the pair of sets perfect for differentiation.


* Though our READING READY Task Cards are made with our Texas teacher friends in mind, they are also aligned with 3rd grade CCSS, making them easily usable by any 3rd grade teacher teaching informational texts all over the U.S.*

Instructions are included for 4 methods of review: task cards review in centers/groups/pairs/individuals, a SCOOT game, Quiz-Quiz-Trade, and a "Be the Teacher" game, but these cards can be used in a variety of other ways to meet your needs.
