Reading Plus Comprehension is a series of seven workbooks designed to develop children's reading and comprehension skills, and to bring meaning and understanding to language and writing at a personal level. Units are themed and linked to the key learning areas of the curriculum and specific attention is given to the selection of text types and activities associated with understanding text. The writing exercises have been planned to encourage children to write for a variety of purposes and in a number of forms. Some are best suited to the whole class to work through together, some are for group work and some are for the child to work on independently. To allow for the monitoring of individual progress, a full set of answers and a checklist for key learning areas are featured at the back of all the Reading Plus Comprehension books.
