Is this frog a reptile or an amphibian?
How do you know?


This is a frog. All frogs are amphibians because they have moist skin, lay their eggs in water, prefer cool temperatures, and their young look different from adult frogs.

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.
