    Super Reading Success is Super

    The well known Sylvan name is now available in workbook form. The third grade reading success combines spelling, vocabulary, and comprehension passages. These are short lessons that mirror the skills that third graders need to be successful. It is not just all tidious work, many of the passages are interesting, fun, and informative. It also gives parents an idea of what skills their child needs to know and perhaps what areas to keep practicing. This makes a perfect resource to have available for rainy days, vacations, or over the long summer break to keep your child actively engaged in learning and reviewing these important skills.
