4th Grade - Reading Ready® Expository Bundle


Customers who used our 4th 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 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 4th Grade Understanding & Analysis of Informational Texts Task Cards – 8 total sets!! These READING READY task card sets focus on the four TEKS Readiness Standards for 4th 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 (4.10 Fig. 19D)
•summarize the main idea and supporting details in text in ways that maintain meaning (4.11A)
•describe explicit and implicit relationships among ideas in texts organized by cause-and-effect, sequence, or comparison (4.11C)
•use multiple text features (e.g., guide words, topic and concluding sentences) to gain an overview of the contents of text and to locate information (4.11D)

The 4 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 4 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 4th grade CCSS, making them easily usable by any 4th grade teacher teaching text features 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.
