The Connect to Comprehension Extension Kit focuses on decoding and understanding more advanced Tier 2 vocabulary, word building with prefixes and suffixes, and advanced comprehension skills such as identifying theme and points of view. The engaging decodable text includes the most common Greek myths: Theseus and the Minotaur, Perseus and Medusa, The Trojan Horse, etc.
Vocabulary cards and fluency/sequencing strips are included in the kit. Also included is a syllabication types and rules anchor chart to give students a handy reference as they are decoding longer words.
The lessons are scripted, explicit, and easy to follow; and a writing prompt is included with each myth to help students expand their abilities in written expression.
"I am using the extension kit with my 4/5 students and they LOVE IT!! I have a couple of students who are difficult to get talking and motivated, but they are always excited to read and talk about myths! Thank you for such a wonderful program!"
