The key to reading is understanding what is being read. By reading, a child can become a better reader, but he or she does not necessarily improve his or her reading comprehension. The ability to comprehend what is read is critical to understanding textbooks in later grades, which is why you will find this book has a majority of nonfiction passages. The book repeats important strategies necessary for strengthening reading comprehension skills. By completing the book in order, your child will revisit the strategies.
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.
