Being able to understand written text goes far beyond deciphering words. Your child must be able to comprehend the information he or she reads to be considered a fully competent reader. Of course, comprehension is a skill that takes time and practice to master, which is why including the subject in your homeschool program is a wise idea.
Fortunately, you can improve your child's comprehension skills by using Modern Curriculum Press (MCP) Comprehension Plus. This curriculum for homeschooling was designed to enhance your child's English/language arts education, giving him or her the tools he or she needs to develop as a reader. You can use MCP Comprehension Plus in conjunction with your child's other English/language arts homeschool programs, such as Reading Street. By doing so, you'll be giving your child access to a complete English/language arts education.
