Product Reviews Write a review for this product
"I'm really pleased with this program. Throughout the book your child will complete Editor and Chief pages as well as Writing Detective. In the back of the book there is an answer key.
My favorite part of the book is the reading and writing pages. This is where my son needs the most help so I'm excited about these pages!
Another favorite is the Reading Comprehension. Sometimes the child will be asked to write a summary of the passage which should include the main idea + key details or ideas to support the main idea.
What I like about these pages is how the writing process is broken down and explained in a step-by-step process. The child uses graphic organizers or story maps.
The Reading & Writing really gets the child thinking by asking questions like:
• Which passage is a firsthand account? Why?
• Which passage is a secondhand account? Why?
• What are some similarities between the two accounts?
• What are the differences between the two accounts?
I like how the child has to answer “why?” which is supporting their answer.
