These were developed in order to work on comprehension with the 6 minute solution materials that we were having our students read for Homework. This is a great way to differentiate for the wide range of abilities in a classroom. Repeated reading is a great way to build fluency. We wanted more bang for our buck and decided to work on the comprehension at the same time. We use it in our 3rd grade classes for students reading at a 1st grade level. We strategically teach them how to refer to the text and underline details. Our Title 1 and LAP teachers love it and use it for progress monitoring in their groups.
These questions are not appropriate for 1st graders- they are designed for older students needing rigorous comprehension questions with passages at a 1st grade readability.
You must already have the intermediate Version of 6 Minute Solution in order to use these materials.
