I have used this pack mainly for fill in lessons following initial instruction and guided reading sessions. They are not overly complex but certainly help to challenge a student to think about text, something which is becoming harder and harder to do.
This is a great pack - full of ideas to teach as a whole class and in groups in Guided reading. Presentation is great and the subject matter appeals - the different levels on the same topic are also excellent
I absolutely love all the puzzling pictures and the 'What can you see/infer' resources. I have been using these weekly with my Y4s and their ideas and thoughts are becoming much more mature and interesting.
I really like resources where children have to think, so thank you for all these!
I have been looking for new resources and suggestions to practice comprehension skills. I was tired of my old activities and teaching resources. These look great and I am looking forward to fresh ideas..
This pack is so useful - it has helped me in so many ways!!
The comprehension packages covers an extension range of materials. It is especially helpful for 1st timer who has no experience in coaching their kid. The comprehension guide is excellent!It certainty give me an insight in guiding my child. Thank you!
I was particularly looking forward to this set and it certainly didn't disappoint . Inference and interesting materials for the children to work with are always challenging. Biggest challenge now is to select the specific materials needed for each lesson. Our photocopying and printing budget is severely limited. Yes I live in Austerity Britain!!!
Really useful time saver and some creative and interesting ideas - I especially love the puzzling pictures and the inference ideas - gets them to realise that comprehension is an every day activity and they are doing it all the time. Thanks.
I love all the packs on this site, they save me time as a busy teacher and well worth the money. The latest one I have been using is the comprehension pack- especially the 'what can you see infer' and 'what do you know infer'. My class were awful with Inference and I used one of these every morning at the start of the day and by the end of the first two weeks my children showed so much progress with inference - fantastic resource thank you!
Love this pack. Great difffentiation lovely images. I use them in Guided Reading sessions.
