This handout has been created to send home with leveled readers within the primary grades. Students routinely take home weekly or nightly leveled readers. In addition to practicing the decoding strategies taught within small group instruction, I wanted the students to practice the comprehension strategies and respond to text. Therefore, I created this extension menu. Parents were supplied with the decoding strategies and simply would initial the questions asked and return the writing completed on an additional piece of paper. This way those students who quickly and easily read the text were then able to respond to the text and practice comprehension for the week.
The menu may be adapted to your needs of nightly, weekly, or bi-monthly.
I hope you find this menu helpful for your primary readers!
