Comprehension is key to a child's success in school, for reading is more than just recognizing and pronouncing printed words - it involves comprehending the meaning of those words as well. Children can truly read only when they understand the meaning of the words they can pronounce. This packet provides activities designed to strengthen important comprehension skills, including identifying the main idea. Exercises are designed so a child can work with a minimum of supervision in a classroom or at home. Answer keys included.
