Comprehension, or the ability to extract information from a text while reading, is an important skill for both your child's educational journey and his or her future. If your child can't comprehend texts, he or she is not able to read to his or her full potential. For this reason, you likely want to include a Comprehension program in your child's curriculum for homeschooling.

Fortunately, you can access Modern Curriculum Press (MCP) Comprehension Plus. This homeschool program was designed to help students in elementary-level grades learn how to understand the information included in the texts they read. You can use MCP Comprehension Plus in conjunction with other English/language arts homeschool programs, to ensure your child gets a well-rounded education that primes him or her for advanced instruction. For instance, Comprehension pairs well with Reading (with Reading Street), Spelling (with MCP Spelling Workout) and Phonics (with MCP Plaid Phonics).

MCP Comprehension Plus helps you create lessons that follow a proven format. First, you'll introduce your child to and instruct him or her on a concept pertaining to reading Comprehension. Then your child will get to put that new knowledge to use by completing engaging reading and writing activities. This approach ensures your child has plenty of opportunities to practice Comprehension, a task that will ultimately solidify the information you share.

MCP Comprehension Plus: Grade 3 is part of the introductory group of reading programs. During this level, your child will gain the foundational knowledge he or she needs to progress in his or her English/language arts education. By the time your child completes Grade 3, he or she will be able to:

  • Use examples from a story to answer questions about a text.
  • Comprehend and explain main ideas expressed in a text.
  • Discuss thoughts, opinions, and conclusions he or she had as the result of reading and understanding a text.
  • Comprehend Grade-appropriate stories while reading at a steady pace.

You can help your child achieve these and other goals using the materials included in MCP Comprehension Plus: Grade 3. For more information about the specific items you'll receive, visit the Features and Benefits page.
