Overview

An effective resource for improving young students' comprehension skills

With 100 high-interest reading activities, this book is designed to help students gain fundamental comprehension skills so they can succeed in reading complex and varied types of texts. Each lesson includes a brief reading selection followed by questions, multiple-choice selections, and thinking and writing activities. The activities, all on reproducible worksheets, can be used to give individual students or groups extra practice, or as supplemental skill-building and test-prep activities for the full class.

  • Activities are grouped within seven units, each focusing on an important aspect of comprehension
  • Units increase in difficulty level so that students gain proficiency as they work through the material
  • High-interest themes include stories about robots, animal helpers, space, and famous people
  • Offers activities that build the advanced cognitive skills called for in the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP)

Each lesson includes a teacher section with guidance on how to introduce the activities to students and support them in their reading practices.
