RI.3.1 Worksheets

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 practice this skill through both fiction and nonfiction reading comprehension exercises.

These worksheets can help students practice this Common Core State Standards skill.
