comprehension, grades 3–6
the comprehension, grades 3–6, is an instructional tool that provides direct, explicit, and systematic instruction on 7 comprehension processes for intervention groups for grades 3–6.
the lessons include passages, graphic organizers, and manipulatives. each comprehension process is first taught separately and then spiraled together so that students learn how to use several processes while reading.
this product is especially useful for students who are accurate and fluent but still not comprehending.

here's a success story from one our customers:
before we began using 95 percent group’s comprehension, grades 3-6
, many of our students had difficulty moving beyond the concrete level of comprehension. now, they are not only actively placing colored tokens on the words that help them connect, question, predict, and form images, but they are independently employing these processes in reading-related activities throughout the day!
through the clear and actively engaging steps in the process, the students are anchoring their comprehension in key words from the passage and then stopping to think about what they know, what they want to find out, and how ideas connect and expand their understanding. the multisensory aspect of color-coding, placing tokens, and using gestures ensures that students stay actively involved and monitoring their comprehension.
parents have been e-mailing us to report, "my son spontaneously explained how he made a connection as we were going over homework tonight. he actually taught me how connections help us understand what we are reading. i was thrilled." we are excited to apply 95 percent group’s techniques to reading in all subject areas.
