MEGA Science Bundle
* Nine science nonfiction passages including a digging deeper activity for each day of the week AND a comprehension quiz! *

Rereading is definitely key in comprehension as well as fluency. However, getting kids to reread is definitely a challenge. I suggest making it a habit. Here is one way to make rereading a habit.

This product includes science nonfiction text passages. Give the passages to the students each morning. Have them complete the corresponding questions for that day of the week. Collect it from them so they don't work ahead. Your goal is to have them reread it. Pass it back to them each day and have them complete the corresponding morning work questions. Return it to them on Friday to have one last reread, and then give them the comprehension quiz!

If you really want to drive home the point of rereading, give them the quiz after reading the selection only one time and then compare their results to their quiz results after rereading the passage all week.

You will find many literary topics embedded within the text as well as the questions. Learning to read nonfiction text is a skill within itself.
