Full of detail, engaging examples, and comprehensive work, students will focus on the meanings inherent within words, sentences & paragraph structure, as well as reasoning skills. Each topic has an introduction written directly to the student with multiple examples to clarify any new concepts. Writing and labeling exercises allow for hands-on application of their new skills, as activities become progressively more difficult. Build a solid foundation for later reading comprehension skills with open-ended questions that allow students to think creatively to come up with their own answer. 137 pages, softcover. Grades 5-6.
