With Hands On Comps you’ll be able to find something for everyone and tackle a range of comprehension skills. These sets of carefully graded (RA6-15/Entry 1-Level 1), motivational passages are über-practical.
Each box contains 40 inspirational cards with 10 cards at each reading level. Every card has a title and summary sentence on the front. Inside you’ll find the reading passage on the left and multiple choice answers on the right. Aside from their motivational content, for struggling students we’ve been told one of the keys to their success is this layout.
The fact that the passages appear on the left-hand page and the multiple-choice questions are on the right allows your students to scan the texts – this minimises visual memory difficulties. You can be sure that you are helping learners’ practice their reading skills and not their short-term memory.
Housed in the same sleek tins that set Hands On Packs apart from their rivals, Hands On Comps cover a range of reading skills – concentrating on one particular skill per tin. A separate card provides instructions and teaching tips together with a list of the reading ages of each passage and answers.
