3-5 short answer questions are included for the entire book divided into chapters for daily reading. For example, ch 1-2 has a few short answer questions and 2 places for kids to write 2 words they didn't know and look up the meaning of the words. Then, chapters 3-4 is set up the same way. Then, chapters 5-7 has the same format. Students can read the book in 11 days following the chapters as they are divided. This is a great daily check of comprehension/discussion to do in small group daily or as a daily comprehension check as well to turn in.
