from Midlothian, VA wrote the following on :
I love, love, love McCall-Crabbs books. These are precisely the tool that I was looking for to give short, daily practice in reading comprehension, and I've found other uses for the short passages in the two years that we have been using this resource. It takes my children mere minutes a day to answer the eight comprehension questions on each passage, but I'm a strong believer in slow and steady winning the race. I've seen their comprehension test scores go up significantly since we started using McCall-Crabbs, and I simply like the way it makes them think about what they're reading and work out strategies for finding information. Beyond just the basic comprehension, we have used these to work on keyword outlining with Institute for Excellence in Writing materials, we've used them for examining different sentence structures, and we've used them in working on specific strategies in test taking (should you read the passage or the questions first?). I appreciate that it doesn't take much of our time, that we can easily track our scores from day to day and week to week, and my children like to compete with themselves to see how high of a grade-equivalent score they can get or if they can get 8/8 correct many days in a row. A lot of bang for the buck for around $4 a book!
