Learning to read is a fun and exciting time in a child's life. While children need to be able to decode and read words accurately and fluently, it is important that they be able to understand what they are reading. The goal of reading is to understand text for enjoyment and/or gathering information. This cannot happen unless children comprehend what they read. Good readers think about what they are reading, make connections to what they already know, and apply their knowledge of vocabulary and language to make sense of what they read. The activities in this book will help your child develop efficient comprehension strategies so he or she can become a better reader.
Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun. Each 56-page book features full-color activities, a list of the skills, and an explanation of why those skills are important for development.
