Do you have a trick on how 1st graders can learn reading comprehension? I know of a teacher who said that some of her students were good in reading but when it comes to the test of comprehension they failed. It is like knowing how to read but not understanding what you are reading. My take on the issue is to give the readers something that is relevant to them. An example is the news of the day that a 1st grader will definitely not be interested in. How about a short story about Barbie doll or some other toys? Maybe an item about a particular snack will arouse the interest of the reader.
