Nonfiction Reading Comprehension - Social Studies

These books contain high-interest, nonfiction passages that help children develop their skills in reading comprehension while simultaneously learning about various social studies topics like how the bald eagle became the national emblem and how Saint Bernards work as rescue dogs. Each lesson starts off by introducing students to a handful of vocabulary words used in that particular passage. Then students read the passage, which varies in length by grade level (in first grade, it is five paragraphs and 275-300 words long). The passages are moderately rigorous given the intended grade levels and are each approximately one page in length. Each passage covers an interesting, grade-appropriate social studies topic. You may choose to work through the book from beginning to end or pick passages that complement your other lessons for the day. Following each passage, a set of 5 multiple-choice questions tests comprehension of the main idea, specific details, vocabulary, analogies, sequencing, and thinking beyond the facts. The arrangement of each unit is ideal for test practice as it follows the format of standardized tests. Although students answer questions directly within each unit, a separate master copy of an answer sheet is provided should you want to simulate a more realistic test setting. Each level contains 44 passages. Answers included. Reproducible, 144 pgs. ~ Enh
