How can using daily reading response questions with Wonders Unit 3 for 3rd grade help you determine text and standards mastery?
As my students move through the Wonders units, I’m often trying to determine how they are doing with the text because I can’t sit and listen to every student every day.
Are they able to decode the words?
Can they use context clues?
How is this affecting their comprehension?
For me to plan effectively, I need formative assessments daily.
So, I created this resource.
Every day students respond to two questions: one for reading comprehension based on the standard, and one for vocabulary.
What I love about this resource is that I can quickly scan the responses and determine small group instruction in the moment or help plan the next day’s instructional changes. Quickly is the keyword here.
The layout of these daily formative assessments helps me answer the question, Can the student answer a text-dependent question and use evidence to support that answer?
These daily questions help me see who has mastered this and who needs additional support.
Unit 3 – Week 1 and 2
The text in the first two weeks is literature. The skills are problem and solution, and cause and effect, so all of the questions will be focused on those skills. (See photo above)
