Reading Comprehension - A Review and Giveaway!!!

As a homeschool teacher I am always on the look out for easy to use products that I can incorporate into our classroom.   With a busy schedule and different age groups to teach, I can genuinely appreciate a product that can be used  with minimal explanation. This frees up some valuable time that I can use teaching other subjects!  Little Red's Schoolhouse has some great items that do just that.


This last week our classroom was able to use Little Red's Reading Comprehension packet.  This packet has over 80 pages of great learning materials.  There are worksheets AND fun activities included!


I found this packet simple to use.  First I selected worksheets that we would  use during the upcoming week. I then printed them out as booklets.   After folding each booklet, they were ready to use! (Some of the kids used brads or raffia to beautify their booklets:)

This product is geared for grades 3-5.   I used it for my 2nd - 8th graders! My 2nd grader used it to learn about new language topics, while my 8th grader used it as a review!


This packet has easy references so you can use each page for before reading, during reading, or after reading. The attractive layout and cute graphics were an added bonus to these worksheets. There are definitions and simple explanations on each page.


  This worked great for our classroom! Even though all my kids are reading at different levels, they were all able to use these to learn and reinforce important language concepts.  



 Everyone here at Thetravelingclassroom has been learning a bunch this past week!  We will be using the  other reading activities this next week along with the cute Reading Royalty Achievement Certificates and Badges when we are finished!  

  You can read more of what is include in this packet at their TPT store.

 You can also grab the FREE  Reading Royalty Achievement Certificates and Badges here.  Don't forget to leave a comment if you download it!

  3. Looks like agreat learning tool for my baby boy :)

  4. 4th grade they would benefit from because they do alot of writing and test

  5. 1st grade. We never have enough. If I sharpen twice as many as the day before we still run short. Staci Stout

  6. This would work great for my son, the last of my six children to still be in home school.

  7. I teach a 10 yr old. I think he could benefit from the genre study. We have only touched a little bit on different genres. I know he'd also love the pencil sharpener!

  8. I teach my 8 year old. We have trouble finding easy ways to practice, practice, practice skills.

  9. Thanks for sharing this resource at After School!


Please share your thoughts! I would love to hear from you:)
