Description

Do you know how magnets work? Do you know why the ocean is salty? Or what's the difference between fruits and vegetables? Do you what Rayleigh Scattering is? Reading Skills 5A is a collection of nonfiction passages with interactive learning activities, written by children's author Marne Ventura, M.A. and developed by Fred Ventura, Ph.D. This app is the first in the Reading Skills Series published by Ventura Educational Systems.

Understanding informational text is essential to literacy. To help young readers develop this skill, twelve fun, high-interest passages about genetics, earth science, botany, electromagnetism and more, written at the fifth grade reading level, are presented:

• Mendel's Genetics
• Why is the Ocean Salty?
• Fruit or Vegetable?
• Rayleigh Scattering
• The Earth's Layers
• How Do Magnets Work?


Each passage is followed by three engaging activities based on the following Common Core Standards for Grade 5 Language Arts:

• comprehension
• vocabulary
• main idea and supporting details
• drawing conclusions
• making inferences
• summarizing
• synonyms and antonyms
• multiple meanings words
• fact vs. opinion
• genre
• author's purpose
• compare and contrast
• text features

The Reading Skills 5A follow-up activities for each of the 12 passages are described below:

Word Fun - a clue is given along with the scrambled letters of a vocabulary word from the passage. The challenge is to unscramble the letters to spell the word.

Science Facts - helps improve recall and comprehension. Students read a statement and tap either True or False based on the contents of the passage.

Skills Practice - Students practice reading comprehension skills by answering multiple choice questions.

A record-keeping component keeps track of the student’s scores on all of the activities.
