Reading and Reasoning sample and contents pages are available to view.
Reading and Reasoning is a series of five titles designed to meet the needs of children who require practice in looking for meaning in different text types and illustrations. The activities are designed for pupils in Key Stage 1 in mainstream and Key Stages 2, 3 students and older who are experiencing difficulties in learning or who require additional practice.
Each book aims to develop the following comprehension skills:
classification, interpreting text, picture completion, comprehension,sequencing,true/false, cloze and orientation.
Each activity offers the opportunity for the pupil to examine a text more closely in a separate exercise at the bottom of each page, labelled ‘Look again’. This section may require the pupil to deduct information; give reasons for their deductions; or write a definition for a word from the text to confirm their understanding of the vocabulary.
