This series presents a unique approach to building not only reading comprehension skills but also language usage skills.
Each Unit presents an image with a story. From the story, 10 vocabulary words are pulled so that the student cal learn more about that word and its use. The words are all in the same conjugation as used in the story. Students will define each word and its part of speech. Then they will use the vocabulary word in a new sentence to further their understanding of the tense and usage. After the vocabulary has been addressed, it is time for the student to answer comprehension questions about the story. Having a better understanding of the vocabulary will allow the students to activate their recall of what they have read. To further the student's comprehension, they will be challenged to make predictions on the content they have read and then continue the story in a creative writing exercise. By making predictions, the students can demonstrate their true understanding of the story and by continuing the story on their own, they can further practice their writing skills.
