Literature study guides train students to become active readers. The guides focus on vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, and composition skills. Each lesson includes a word study to help students build vocabulary. The comprehension questions challenge students to consider what they have read, identify the important content of each story, and compose clear, concise answers (a difficult skill at any age). Writing is thinking, and good questioning stimulates the child to think and write.
Children who are asked to read slightly above their comfort level will develop into superior readers. Memoria’s reading program for grades 2-7 continues the development of reading skills through the selections listed above. Reading is not a passive activity for pleasure. Reading requires an active, discriminating mind that is challenged to think, compare, and contrast. Students who have been challenged by good literature will never be satisfied with the poor-quality books that are so readily available today.
A note from Memoria Press:
The publisher of A Cricket in Times Square recently switched to a revised and updated version of the novel. We have not yet been able to reprint our guides to reflect this change but we have included with your purchase a download of the updated study guide pages and quizzes.
