Using high interest text and fun activities, students will work on skills such as answering WH questions, visualization, beginning inferring skills, re-telling/summarizing the story, identifying the main idea, and using context clues. While the focus of this six week group is comprehension word attack strategies and sentence writing will also be taught. Students will be exposed to both nonfiction and fiction texts. 

Comprehension for Grade 3: Fridays 4:45-5:45

As students enter grade three learning shifts from learning to read to reading to learn. Our six week session will help students practice the necessary skills to help them interpret longer and more complex text. Each week students will practice a different skill using fun and motivating fiction and non-fiction texts. Students will also practice writing responses to text based questions. Skills to be practiced include; identifying main ideas, differentiating between relevant and irrelevant details, inference, prediction, visualization, summarization, and how to use context clues.
