A fantastic tool to strengthen reading comprehension skills.

I am a second year homeschooler and was looking for something that would strengthen my son's comprehension skills, but not be terribly overwhelming. I love the format. It is three days of short passages and inference questions, followed by a fourth day of longer passage. The fifth day is a writing exercise based on the passage from day four. It is perfect for my reluctant reader.
Great comprehension practice, includes writing practice as well

I love the 180 days workbooks. Use them everyday in homeschool. This one is separated into weeks. Each day of the week has an assignment. Every week has an underlying topic. The first 3 days of the week, they read a short paragraph and answer about 6 multiple choice questions. Day 4, you read a full page and answer more questions than days 1-3, but still doesn't take too long. Day 5 is a written assignment based on Day 4's reading, but usually you can incorporate the whole week. I love the set up. I use 180 Writing as well and have the weeks off set so he isn't writing 2 big paragraphs every Friday. One begins on Thursdays and ends Wednesday, the other is Monday through Friday. This one really is more in line with how they will be expected to do reading comprehension on standardized tests. Even a homeschooler will have to take ACT/SAT, and whatever test for grad school. It's great practice that doesn't take too much time without teaching purely just how to pass tests, and isn't just busy work. The topics range from What is a healthy diet to How TV advertisements work. They also double as great ideas for short mini lessons when I want to teach more on the topic.
Best Reading Comp Book Ever

As a retired educator I found this to be the best reading comprehension book I have ever used. What I liked best about the book is that each week starts with a theme/specific subject and focuses on it for four days, and then on the fifth day there is a writing prompt that allows students to write about the topic that they have been reading about all week. It's a wonderful tool for students who are struggling with reading comp.

My kids love this! We bought it for summer review. They do a little each day and I don't even have to ask them to do it.

Love this book! Passages are short so they don’t take much time & there is an assessment at the end of every week.
