Basic Skills: Comprehension by Glenne Hutchings


Basic Skills: Comprehension by Glenne Hutchings

BASIC SKILLS: COMPREHENSION follows in the established format of the previous books in the successful BASIC SKILLS series. This inspiring new resource provides a wide range of exciting activities for teachers to use with 11 to 14 year-olds, who are operating at National Curriculum Level 4 or below. The innovative and stimulating photocopiable worksheets contain sentence-level activities, which can be used within the classroom or at home. They help to teach traditional basic skills progressively, and then reinforce new knowledge through lively and enjoyable games. The author has provided the teacher with invaluable guidance on how the worksheets can be used to best effect. The worksheets offer motivating comprehension skills exercises, and the clear, uncluttered layout fosters confidence and enjoyment in the work. The activities are designed to raise achievement, enabling pupils to improve their sentence-level work while making learning fun!
