Preview Book

100% comprehension using fiction and non-fiction texts.

The Comprehension Box for 3rd-4th Class contains:

  • 150 colourfully illustrated cards with texts covering a variety of genres and text types.
  • 15 colour-coded sections.
  • Pupil Tracking Sheet Pad.
  • Questions on the back of each card.
  • Answer cards.
  • Scope and sequence chart.
  • A comprehensive Teachers Guide providing suggestions on how to explicitly teach comprehension strategies along with answers and pupil and teacher recording sheets.

Flexible use within the classroom

  • Pupils could be grouped according to reading level, work on the cards in a particular colour and then discuss and summarise what they have learned with their peers.
  • Capable, independent readers can work through the cards at their own pace, freeing up the teacher’s time to work intensively with different groups in the class.
  • Ideal for differentiation.
  • Teachers can easily assign the colour-coded cards to each pupil’s reading level.
  • Ten cards in each colour-coded section ensure that pupils practise comprehension strategies using a variety of texts and comprehension activities.
  • Each colour-coded section gradually increases in reading difficulty, leading to constant progression.
  • Pupils working on the same coloured section can alternate cards and engage in various station activities over ten lessons.

    How will I use the Comprehension Box? *Resource Room- I like the length of the comprehensions. The children will be able to read the text and complete the questions – orally or using short sentences – with me in the resource room. I might also send one home for homework. *Classroom - These would be brilliant in the classroom and could be used for station teaching/ guided reading. One group could work on these independently while another group completes grammar activities or dictionary work and another group works with the teacher. They could be used 1/2 days a week as a comprehension session – with 150 cards there is plenty for each child to have one each. Alternatively they could have 1 between 2 and do a paired reading session or 1 per group. *Early finishers – the box could be used as an early finishers activity – the children can take a card at their level, complete the questions and then self correct when they have finished using the answer cards. * Quality - The comprehension cards and answer cards are made from a durable card so will definitely last.
