    Hi guys,

    Having had an iffy optional reading SATs, i've decided it's time to up my game for reading. My class currently read a book and do comp on that, however i'd like some stand alone texts with questions they can get on with on their own. Their levels range from 1b - 3a, so i'm just wondering if anyone knows of any books, or places I could download some.

    Ideally they need to have the text and the questions on one or two sheets because I would like it to be 'cold' so that they get used to reading and inferring rather than reading, discussing and then inferring. Thanks.

  3. Hiya,

    Some of the things I've tried are the Andrew Brodie Improving Comprehension series - they are published for different ages and come in 3 levels for each text which is handy! Scholastic also do a nice comprehension book, forgotten what it's called but they come in Year 3, 4 etc. Not differentiated but cover a variety of text types whcih is handy. Rising Stars do an assessment pack for each half term (whole year in one book) that is good as it plots specific questions against each AF so you can track where you children are weaker. Hope that's a start for you!

    I have these:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Reading-Comprehension-Key-Stage-1/dp/0721707343/ref=pd_sim_b_2

    Which are nicely levelled. Ignore the folder cover it looks nothing like that when you actually buy it.

    There is also a bridging pack that would be good for your level 3 children.
