What cake has a toy inside of it? Do islands float? Reading for Comprehension Readiness, Full-Color Edition is an update of our popular series and uses engaging lessons to help build reading-for-information skills students will need in later grades.
Exclusive to this edition
- A color-rich design and new articles have been added.
- In the first three lessons, the skill for each question is labeled, so students identify the type of question being asked. In the lessons that follow, the labels are eliminated to allow students to show what they know.
- Audio for each passage is available for additional listening support.
Each book includes high-interest, nonfiction articles, followed by activities and questions to assess comprehension and build critical thinking skills. Books are written at the first-grade level, but the high-interest articles make them ideal for struggling readers at higher grades.
