Category Description for Memoria Press Literature Guides:

Just the right stuff! Thats what youll be thinking as you use this warm and inviting reading program from Memoria Press. The guides are well-organized, user-friendly, academically challenging, and graphically pleasing. Memoria believes that reading is not a passive activity, but that it requires an active, discriminating mind, one that has been challenged to think, compare, and contrast. That philosophy is evident in these guides.

Student Guides are consumable at the lower levels, providing space for the student to write. Each book/story/ poem is approached in much the same way, although with increasing depth. Vocabulary, comprehension/discussion questions, quotations, composition, and miscellaneous literary analysis activities (sequencing, literary terms, dictation, poetry connections, etc.) are covered.

Upper level books (Gr. 2 and up) are organized around the Trivium, and activities are grouped into Pre- Grammar (preparation prior knowledge or experience), Grammar (presentation essential facts, elements, and features), Logic (dialectic reasons with the facts, elements, and features), and Rhetoric (expression explains in own words with supporting details). Although there is consistency from lesson to lesson, there is also an extra activity provided with each lesson, and these are quite varied. Background information on the author and book is included. Several high school level guides have transitioned to Second Editions, which are smaller-format (6"x 9") with a focus on student activities without lined spaces. Students would record their work in a separate notebook.

Teacher Guides provide valuable teaching information and full-text answer keys at all grade levels. Beyond this there are variances within the guides. Discussion talking points, reproducible quizzes and final tests (with answers) are included in numerous guides especially at the upper levels. The first grade program (StoryTime Treasures and More StoryTime Treasures) differs a little bit in content due to the lower grade level. The second-grade level includes pre- and post-reading exercises that focus on continued phonics development, syllabication and vocabulary for the emerging independent reader. For grades 2-9, we are now offering literature guide only packages that include all the student and teacher guides for each grade, no books. ~ Janice

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.

These books are great ways of learning about what you just read. They enforce what the children is reading and making sure they are understanding what they are reading. I love that the book puts in vocabulary words in as well.

The book for the kids has many options: writing, comprehension, vocabulary, analysis, evaluation. I like the idea to work all of this with my kids.

Meager vocabulary exercises
I think, the only thing I like are the discussion questions. It was the only thing that helped my daughter understand the book better.

The comprehension questions were fine, but most of the time, my daughter (8 years old) needed more explanation on how to answer them. The questions were as though they were written for a much older student.

To me, the vocabulary exercises in any novel study guide is more important than the comprehension questions. Reading well-written, award-winning novels is essential for vocabulary building and learning how to write well.

But the vocabulary exercises in Memoria Press (MP) Charlotte's Web is scanty. It didn't help the student figure out independently the meaning of the vocabulary words in context, which I believe, it should. It should also have provided more vocabulary words.

This MP study guide focused too much on having the child copy a paragraph from the book.
