Activity books that will support your pupils on the journey: from decoding texts to reading comprehension and critical thinking
In order for your pupils to become confident in their comprehension abilities, they must first be confident in their ability to decode texts. Indeed, once decoding has been mastered they will be well on their way to becoming confident in their reading comprehension abilities.
Towards the end of primary school an ability to think critically about texts will also be established where pupils will be pondering questions, such as: “what does the writer really mean?” and “why has the writer chosen to use these words?”
With Brilliant Publications’ Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension series for Years 1 to 6, you can support your pupils on this journey, all the way from decoding and comprehending texts to thinking critically about those texts.
The passages in the Reading Comprehension series provide children with a variety of engaging texts, ranging from newspaper articles and dialogues, to plays, stories and poems – all specially written for the purpose.
Activities range from simple factual recall and vocabulary work to open-ended questions – enabling the reader to provide a more personal response. There are also detailed suggestions for integrating writing, speaking and other literacy tasks with the passages.
The texts and activities gradually increase in difficulty as your pupils progress through the book (and through the series), encouraging children to develop their ability to read for meaning and use a range of strategies to engage with the text.
