Stories From Grandma's Attic Reading Comprehension Guides

Practice language arts skills, encourage reading comprehension, and enjoy good stories - all wrapped up in one neat and user-friendly package. These just-right-for-early-elementary reading comprehension guides are based on the Grandma's Attic series by Arleta Richardson. A young girl (the author) listening to her grandmother tell stories of her childhood means that the historical setting of the stories is the turn of the previous century (19th to 20th), and a surprising amount of history can be gleaned from these books. The stories are interesting and appealing to active children; at the same time they illustrate biblical character qualities and spiritual development. These guides provide just the right touch for drawing reading comprehension lessons and language arts practice from enjoyable reading. The guides provide 5-8 questions pertaining to the content of each chapter (Stories - 23 chapters; More Stories - 16 chapters; Still More - 14 chapters). Although some questions are multiple choice or short answer, for the most part students are encouraged to investigate vocabulary and answer in complete sentences, practicing penmanship while demonstrating good spelling and grammar (grading options are provided for reading, English, and spelling). As the student progresses through the series, longer answers are expected. Occasionally, extra activities such as word searches or mazes are included. A Bible verse (with life application) is available for memorization as part of each chapter. Answer keys are in the back of each Guide. Brief notes for the teacher are part of the introduction. Guides have spiral binding. Note: 'Stories From Grandma's Attic" is currently being published as "In Grandma's Attic". The Guide includes two stories (Grandpa's Apron and What Did You Expect) that are not included in this version. ~ Janice
