PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FREE SAMPLE! Thank you for downloading this sample product. This is the answer key to the reading workbook which is part of a complete unit for the book. Purchasing the complete unit includes:

1. Reading Workbook
2. Fun Book (I wanted to call it “Interactive Notebook,” but my students dubbed it “Fun Book”)
3. Answer Key to Reading Workbook with teaching notes

Reading Workbook

The reading workbook has an academic focus which teaches skills and utilizes close reading of the text to promote comprehension. There are pre-reading skill exercises and post-reading content questions. The workbook is divided into 11 units, some of which include more than one chapter. The number of questions for each unit varies, depending on the wealth of material to cover in those chapters.
The skills covered in the pre-reading exercises include phonics and decoding skills. The questions themselves include enough text from the chapter so that even struggling readers will be able to read the chapters after doing the pre-reading exercises.

Pre-Reading Skills:
**short and long vowels
**regular and irregular sounds of vowels and vowel combinations
**variations in sounds of consonants (i.e. [c] sounds like /k, s/)
**consonant sounds with irregular spellings (i.e. /f/ can be [ph] or [ough])
**words with silent [ e ]
**identify silent letters
**find rhymes
**sounds of [+ed] affix
**spelling of [+ing] affix
**meaning of [un+] affix on new words
**reading a “key” to understand an illustration

**compound words

**use correct pronouns
**add commas to items in a series
