Product Description
Scanning is a skill that is often overlooked! It needs to be practiced. Especially with the amount of standardized timed test our students are taking.

The following is included in this product:
This four-page resource is designed with the real-world in mind. It uses two pages of ads from the paper and asks students specific questions first about each ad.

How to use:
It is meant to be used in a timed setting. You decide the time and setting! These are the skills our students need to be practicing to become efficient readers!
Student directions include the following:
Scanning is a very high-speed reading. When you scan, you have a question in mind. You do not read every word, only the words that answer your question. Practice in scanning will help you learn to skip over unimportant words so that you can read faster. Scanning is a skill that you often use in daily life. (Think scrolling down your Facebook timeline!)
