:
"Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text."

Our Take: When explaining the meaning of a text or drawing inferences from a text, the fourth grader will cite specific examples to support his thoughts. A wide range of reading comprehension exercises can help build this skill. Teachers should prompt students to explain their impressions of a text thoroughly and make sound arguments.

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