Primary Phonics Comprehension Workbook 1 Grades K-2


In Primary Phonics Comprehension Workbooks, students develop comprehension skills as they sequence, recognize story elements, and use context clues to build meaning. Each workbook corresponds to a set of 10 storybooks within each level. Sequencing activities provide an early introduction to comprehension skills. Questions and activities promote inferential thinking. Students are encouraged to refer back to text for information. 

The Thinking about Mac and Tab: Primary Phonics Comprehension workbooks introduce basic reading comprehension skills using each of the 50 original Primary Phonics storybooks. Thinking about Mac and Tab can also help teachers assess their students' reading abilities.

Thinking about Mac and Tab Book 1 is the comprehension component to Primary Phonics Storybooks Set 1. This book contains early comprehension exercises designed for beginning readers. The addition of a comprehension component to workbook exercises and story reading improves the effectiveness of the Primary Phonics series and forges a closer student-text relationship while enhancing analytical skills.

Exercises are included for each story in the set. Exercises include sequencing, story elements, and story recall. Follow-up activities include writing and illustration.
