Reading Fundamentals: Grade 5
Reading is fundamental to kids' success in school. So keep them on track with these colorful, engaging workbooks. This Flash Kids series combines fascinating topics, eye-catching photographs, and a bright, appealing design children will love. Created to adhere to the Common Core State Standards that most US states have adopted, each book presents young readers with nonfiction passages that cover a range of topics, including science, history, and geography. Questions following each passage 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
