20-week bumper pack of reading comprehensions linked to a variety of Disney (Book 2) and Rock (Book 1) songs specifically chosen for these packs. This is particularly suitable for Years 4, 5 and 6. 10 songs in each pack!
Each song is broken down into 4 reading comprehensions, starting with retrieval and recording, then context clues, inference and finally an assessment where children are encouraged to work out what type of question they are being asked.
Weekly lesson plans are provided along with answer sheets.
