Nancy Larson Makes Science Primary in Reading!
Vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension are three important components in reading that we have taken into consideration when we wrote our lessons. To reinforce your child's reading skills and comprehension of text, important strategies are built into the program. Some of these include observing, visualizing, applying, predicting, describing, and summarizing.
If you are teaching more than one child you will want another set of Student Materials for each additional child.
