The difficulty level of the questions and responses is moderately easy. The majority are simple search and find literal answers. Most are restated using the exact same language as the text, with a few questions designed to stretch readers to the next level. These require readers to notice illustrations to help infer the answer. Each Usborne Beginner Reader has a Table of Contents, Glossary and Index. When possible, questions are structured to encourage use of these text features when locating information.
Provide accountability in your supported independent reading time! Students read independently, then respond to what they read.
