Reading for Details I
Reading practice for Grades 1-3
Read 26 stories about adventures, activities, nature, and human interests. All require careful reading to comprehend and recall details in order to answer the comprehension questions that follow. The student is asked to determine the main idea of the story, answer some questions that rely on details in the story, and make an inference that is supported by the details.
For older children and adults
Older children struggling with reading and adults learning to read can enjoy 37 stories about history, nature, and human interests. These stories test comprehension as they provide interesting facts about the world around us.
Words for Beginning Readers
Studies have shown that good readers look at some words and automatically decode them. The Sight Words app lets beginning readers get a head start on learning these words. It also helps older students who are struggling with reading master the sight words.
Do you ever run across a word like supercilious or kerfuffle and chuckle a bit about how they sound? Or see karst or leitmotif and say to yourself, “I didn’t know there was a word for that.”
