Teaching reading can be very overwhelming. There are so many standards to cover and strategies to teach. Even after you finish teaching a standard, you still have some students who haven’t mastered it. That’s why it’s so important to have resources to review and reinforce important reading skills. The Evan-Moor Daily Reading Comprehension book has everything you need to teach and review all of the reading strategies.
Features of Evan-Moor Daily Reading Comprehension
30 Weekly Units
If you’re looking for a way to teach all of the reading standards, this resource has everything you need. There are weekly lesson plans to help you introduce each reading strategy. Then, there is a daily passage to help your students practice and apply what they learned.
By using this resource, you will cover all of the important reading strategies in 30 weeks.
A Scope and Sequence
If you already have a reading program that teaches the standards, Evan-Moor Daily Reading Comprehension will be a great supplement. You can use the “Scope and Sequence” to identify the reading strategy you are teaching for the week and to find passages that practice that strategy.
The passages are short, so they are perfect for a center activity or a guided reading lesson.
At the front of the book, you will find many anchor charts, or visual aids, to help your students understand the reading strategies. You can copy them and give one to each student to put in their reading folders. This way, they can refer to it as they are working. You can also display the visual aids in the classroom so the students always have access to them.
Short, Meaningful Passages
As I mentioned earlier, the practice passages aren’t long. This makes them perfect for a quick review before state testing or as an assessment at the end of the quarter. You could even use them as morning work and have the students complete them as they enter the classroom.
Student Record Sheet
Evan-Moor Daily Reading Comprehension includes a student record sheet. As you check each student’s answers, record their score on this page. Collecting data using this recording sheet will allow you to see which students have mastered a reading strategy and which students still need more practice. As you look across a row, you’ll also be able to see if your student is making progress.
This data is very helpful if you’re trying to form strategy groups.
At the back of the book, there is an answer key for all of the passages. This makes checking your students’ work really fast and easy.
With 150 fiction and nonfiction passages, the Evan-Moor Daily Reading Comprehension resource will make your reading lesson planning so easy! You won’t have to spend hours searching for texts that align with each of the reading strategies.
