Reading Fundamentals: Grade 1
Start kids off right with reading and keep them on track with this colorful, engaging workbook! It combines fascinating topics, eye-catching photographs, and a bright, appealing design children will love. Created to adhere to the Common Core Curriculum standards that most US states have adopted, Reading Fundamentals: Grade 1 presents young readers with nonfiction passages that cover a range of topics, including science, history, and geography. After each passage, a range of questions (fill-in-the-blank, short answer, true/false, multiple choice, and matching) test key comprehension skills.
This FlashKids series, which is aligned to Common Core standards, helps students practice nonfiction reading comprehension skills. The large, full-color photos on each page and the "just-the-right-amount" of both reading and questions appeal. The reading selection length ranges from a few-sentences in a paragraph paired with a few reading comprehension questions (in grade 1) to a full page of text and a separate page of questions (at grade 6). Student activities include short answer, ordering, true/false, complete the sentence and more, and range from 4 questions per selection (in grade 1) to 12 (grade 6). Additional resources are available on the Flash Kids web site. Non-reproducible, 96 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
