This comprehension resource was created for first class pupils. Second class pupils could use it as a form of revision. There are fifty comprehensions in total. If you do one a day it allows for ten weeks worth of work. I do a comprehension every morning with my class. I display the comprehension on the interactive whiteboard. We read it together aloud as a class. We answer the questions orally, then the children do the questions in their copies. I write the answers on the whiteboard for some of the children to transcribe. The comprehensions are based on a variety of topics and are relevant to the lives of children attending school in Ireland.

The passages help to encourage reading fluency. They are differentiated with some being more challenging than others. The passages can be used in:

A whole group setting

Small groups ( differentiated stations)

As a homework activity

Independently ( for some children)

High frequency words are used throughout the passages and the questions are simple and text based. Simple inferential questions are asked and many have multiple choice or true or false options. There are words with inflectional endings (s, ed, ing) and decodable words are also used throughout the texts. The passages are a mixture of fact and fiction and some overlap with SESE too.

Through this resource the following comprehension strategies will be taught:

1.Activate prior knowledge

2.Prediction skills

3.Identifying the main idea

4.Making inferences

5.Visualising

6.Retelling

7.Skimming

8.Scanning

9.Determining importance

10.Connecting and comparing.
