Comprehension, Grades 3-6

Price: $185.00
Item Number: CM1400

Comprehension, Grades 3-6 provides lessons to instruct grade 3-6 students in comprehension processes. This material is designed for use in teaching Tier 2 or 3 small groups of students who have been identified as struggling to comprehend even though their decoding skills are strong. In the elementary version of the product there are 7 comprehension processes taught in the following sequence: Connecting, Questioning, Predicting, Imaging, Inferring, Determining Importance, and Synthesizing. Students are provided opportunities to practice using each strategy with fiction and nonfiction text until mastery. There are also three sets of spiral lessons to show students how to integrate the processes together after they have mastered two to three processes.

The lessons for each process include a starter activity to explore the meaning of the comprehension process, an explicit modeling cycle of “I Do, We Do, You Do,” and a reflect-and-review section after students have practiced with the final paragraph of the passage. These lessons are active and engaging for students because they include hand gestures, manipulative tokens, student discussion, and color-coded processes. There are more than 65 lessons that include corresponding passages for both fiction and nonfiction genres, and each series of lessons for the specific comprehension process culminates in application to individual text after instruction with text provided in the product.

This product contains everything needed for instruction, including text for sharing and modeling as well as student practice. In addition to the full-color Teacher’s Guide of over 275 pages, instructional materials include the following:

  • Magnetic color-coded teacher tokens for think-aloud placement on text and mats
  • Color-coded translucent student tokens for placement on text and mats

Other materials available for download include:

  • Teacher and student passages*,
  • Teacher and student mats,
  • Rubrics and sheets to record progress-monitoring student data.

*Passages are embedded in the teacher’s guide, as well.
