Reviews - What do customers think about Read and Understand Stories and Activities, Grade 1?
Mostly busy work.... May 7, 2006
This is one of the few products from Evan-Moor that I have not been pleased with. The emerging-reader stories are very simple and uninteresting, which makes the questions and activities uninteresting as well. If a child is not comprehending what he or she is reading, it is difficult to see how these dull readings and exercises will improve that.
If you are trying to improve your child's reading comprehension, I recommend reading Jim Treleases's "Read Aloud Handbook" and reading to your child as often as you can, and talking about what you read.
Next encourage your child to read to you, and give him some good emergent reader books, like the "I Can Read" series, or of course the appealing "I Can Read It All by Myself" series of books which includes Dr. Seuss, or any beginning reading book that INTERESTS your child. Talk about what you read, but in a facilitative, curious way, not an interrogative way.
On the other hand, if you need busy work for some reason, then this book is as good as any. My daughter did a couple of lessons in this book during the few times my son needed extra help and I didn't have anything handy for her to do.
