PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains all 4 of my "Recipes for Reading Comprehension" products: "Recipes for Reading Comprehension - Christmas and Winter Themes", "Recipes for Reading Comprehension - Spring", "Recipes for Reading Comprehension - Fall/Autumn Themes", and "Recipes for Reading Comprehension - High Interest Themes". Each product is also available separately. Together, the files contain 40 reading passages and no-cook recipes centered on a variety of seasonal and high interest themes, followed by 4 to 6 comprehension questions for each passage.

The file contains 83 pages of reading comprehension practice, teacher tips and suggestions for use, shopping lists for each recipe, a parent letter to send home prior to using each recipe, and answer keys.

I bought the combo pack after using one of the free recipes with a small group for reading. The kids and I loved it and they can't wait for more. The best part was, the kids were working on reading comprehension skills and had no idea :)
