Synopsis

First Comprehension Book 1 by Celia Warren

First Comprehension provides an early introduction to written comprehension, developing children's enthusiasm for reading and their ability to interpret texts. When working through the series, support from an adult will boost children's confidence and help them to understand and evaluate each text. The books are easy to mark and provide a permanent record of each child's work, helping you to monitor progress. Designed to support the National Curriculum for Years 2 and 3, the content of this series has wide appeal and may also be used by older children. First Comprehension Book 1 is aimed at children in Year 2 (ages 6 - 7) who are attempting written comprehension for the first time. 18 carefully selected texts reflect the range of genres recommended by the National Curriculum, and accompanying questions are presented in two parts, to suit the concentration level of most children in this age group. The first of two First Comprehension activity books, this book features work by writers such as Roald Dahl and A. A. Milne, as well as an excerpt from a children's dictionary and a number of accessible non-fiction texts. The series provides: a brief introduction, enabling teachers, parents and adult helpers to use the books effectively; passages from classic and contemporary fiction to broaden children's reading experience; a wide selection of poetry, from William Wordsworth to Tony Mitton; stimulating non-fiction extracts, with different subjects and structures; a range of question types, including direct, inferential and evaluative questions. The separate Teacher's Guide contains teaching notes, sample answers and further activities for each text, allowing you to use First Comprehension to its full potential.
