The Comprehension Box is a set of three boxes suitable for Ages 7-8+ (Box 1), Ages 9-10+ (Box 2) and Ages 11+ (Box 3) primary-aged students. The boxed sets provide supplementary materials to support the reading programme of teachers catering for the needs of capable, independent readers at each level in the classroom.
The cards feature both fiction and non-fiction texts (incorporating Society and Environment, Science and Health and Values) and fully support the National English Curriculum, which requires teachers to 'use texts from a wide range of genre and school subjects'.
The Comprehension Box incorporates three levels of comprehension questions in a multiple choice format and assess 12 different comprehension skills. Separate answer cards allow the students to work and progress at their own rate while keeping a record for their own and the teacher's reference. The variety of resources included in the Teachers guide assist easy implementation and maintenance of the box program.
Each box contains:
150 colourfully illustrated cards with texts covering a variety of genres and text types
15 colour-coded sections
10 cards in each of the 15 sections, numbered (front to back) from 1 to 10
questions on the back of each card
