What educators are saying

My students loved having their own toolkits to tackle reading. They were actively engaged, and able to "teach" the strategies to their fellow classmates using the models they created for confidence.
I haven't found a product of yours that I don't love yet. My students think that this is so much fun!! They love the days when I add comprehension construction as an option during our Lit. Block.

Comprehension Construction Toolkits (compatible with ANY text or reading series) provide your elementary students with simple, hands-on applications of key comprehension and word work skills. These kits are ideal for small group reading or guided reading as students build and discuss components of the text as a group.

Multi-sensory literacy tasks are supported by the Science of Reading!

The routines appeal to visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners because students are provided a visual, yet concrete way to “build” each piece of the text as they comprehend and explain it. They can further demonstrate their understanding by writing or drawing on the provided graphic organizers for each skill. The graphic organizers can either be copied or placed inside reusable page protectors for students to write and wipe responses.

Includes the following 21 comprehension and word word skills for K-3rd grade:
