Book Description

28 April 2014 1783170700 978-1783170708 Updated 2014
The Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension series (2nd Edition) addresses the Programmes of Study for reading comprehension in the new (2014) national curriculum for England. The importance of being able to read for meaning should never be underestimated. The ability to decode text is not enough. It is vital that children understand what they are reading. More importantly, it is fundamental that they enjoy what they are reading, so that they grow up to become lifelong readers. The passages in the Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension series are designed to do just that. They provide children with a variety of engaging, enjoyable texts that will grab their attention, and indeed their teacher's attention as well. The passages begin in the Year 1 book with simple picture comprehension and poems for reading aloud to children. They gradually increase in difficulty as you progress through the book, and through the series and range from newspaper articles and dialogues, to plays, stories and poems, encouraging children to develop their ability to read for meaning and use a range of strategies to engage with the text. Tasks range from simple factual recall and vocabulary work to more open-ended questions enabling the reader to provide a more personal response. There are detailed suggestions for integrating writing, speaking and other literacy tasks with the passages. The cross-curricular activities provide a wealth of ideas for extending the passages further and are ideal for fast-finishers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great time saver 13 Sep 2014
Format:Paperback
This book is really great and has saved me a lot of prep. time as making up your own reading comp. does take time. I like the way the tasks get harder as the book goes on (begins with picture based tasks) and there is differentiation built in which again saves lots of time.
The only thing I have had to change when using the sheets is giving less able children sentence starters to answer the questions. Do not be put off by the fact it is 'more worksheets' as all the tasks can be copied into books and the sheets put away and used again (if you can find them!)
Well worth the money and I am about to buy the Y2 version...
