Reviews - What do customers think about Spectrum Reading, Grade 3?
An Excellent Reading Source Feb 15, 2010
This series works well with the students I am tutoring. Besides reading, I also use the Spectrum math,vocabulary and grammar series.
Great book for homeschoolers Feb 5, 2010
Great reading/vocabulary/comprehension book all in one. My son looks forward to each lesson and even works ahead since some of the passages/stories are linked - he wants to see what's going to happen next. I'd highly recommend this book. The lessons are short, but full of good questions, predictions, vocabulary, etc. with variety each day, so it's no monotonous. Highly recommended.
Pretty weak on reading comprehension..... Apr 18, 2008
This book does some other English/grammar/word related exercises and might be a decent workbook to reinforce some grammar skills, but it isn't a good book for reading comprehension. The child reads one page and then answers questions on the next, and well over half of the questions are really unrelated to the content that was read. Arguably this was the intent of the book, but if so, they should have separated the reading exercises from the other lessons.
