I thought this would be a book on reading comprehension. Some of the questions it asks are Which is a detail in the paragraph? The main idea is? Can you guess what Molly would like?(predicting question) Vocabulary questions: The word flake in the story means what? What will happen next? Which sentence is an opinion? I felt the book missed the point of reading comprehension at a first grade level. I felt it was more literature analysis who does that in first grade? I also felt the reading level was hard for first grade. This book would be impossible to hand to a typical first grader and expect them to work independently. It did have cute short stories many about social studies and science which is the only reason it even gets 3 stars.

This is a great book for daily quick check of children's mastery of reading skills. It could be used in centers or as whole class instruction. It is a must have for the busy teacher who has to teach and prepare students for the state test too.

It's an easy to use book and the short passages make it easier to "plug" in this activity to a packed daily schedule.

This book is NOT good for teaching Close Reading strategies and has no info about Close Reading instruction. It includes only 1 paragraph passages which is not enough to practice this strategy. I bought the Grade 3 book and it also has only 1 paragraph as does the grade 4 & 5 books It's use would be best for quick reading comprehension checks but not sure if even good for this as the passage is so short.

These short passage close reading exercises have been great for my grade one grandson. He loves working on them! His vocabulary is improving along with his inference and main idea skills.

I love this book. It challenges my students but I feel it reviews a lot of the important Common Core Skills.
