Hand Selected 6th-Grade Reading Comprehension Selections
Each week, your child will read two engaging 6th-grade reading comprehension selections, both fiction and non-fiction. We’ve chosen the best reading selections that will open your son or daughter’s world of reading for comprehension. Your child will learn how to talk about and summarize the stories they have read.
Tap to Read – Read-Aloud Technology from Scholar Within
Does your child ever get frustrated with trying to read or sound out a word that they are unfamiliar with? With Tap to Read, your child can instantly hear the proper pronunciations of words by simply tapping or clicking on the word to hear it aloud. They can also work on their reading fluency and speed by pressing play and following along.

Note-taking and Writing Skills Boost 6th-Grade Reading Comprehension
One of the easiest ways to improve reading for comprehension is to take notes from what you read. Your child will learn to take notes from what they have read and use those notes later. One of the important goals for 6th-grade reading comprehension is to be able to summarize a selection, explain the main idea, and use supporting details. Your 6th-grade reader will get plenty of experience with this. They will use our custom fill-in-the-blank note-taking forms which make it easy to take notes and organize ideas. This method teaches your 6th grader how to take meaningful notes. Your sixth-grader will become a better thinker as they improve their note-taking and writing skills.
Build Long Term Memory Skills
Recalling information is typically quite easy when you answer the reading comprehension immediately following reading the selection. The key is, can you retain the information for a couple of days? We want to build long term reading with comprehension skills. In Scholar Within, your child will answer questions to the selections they have read in the program a day or two later. Your child will learn to remember and recall what they have read by reviewing notes and writing summaries of them. Your child learns the process they will use for years to come to have success in school and in life.
Learn spelling and word attack skills.
Vocabulary and spelling become even more important in the sixth grade. Your sixth-grader will learn how to spell by spelling patterns through our interactive video lessons. Your kids will learn and practice the phonetic spelling patterns of English through each lesson, spelling activity worksheets, puzzles, and games.
Each week, your child will learn to spell ten new words according to their phonetic spelling patterns.
Reading Fluency Training Boosts Reading Comprehension
Reading fluency has a direct impact on reading comprehension. When you read fluently and automatically you have a greater ability to comprehend what you have read. In fact, reading fluency training is one of the most important strategies used to build your child’s success with reading. This is your child’s ability to read with speed and accuracy without conscious attention to the mechanics of reading. This is a critical skill as your child moves into the upper grades and the reading material becomes longer and more complicated.
Our research-proven reading fluency drills work on training your eyes to move more efficiently and smoothly left to right. They also improve your kids’ visual processing speed, or how fast they can retrieve and process what they see. You and your kids will love seeing their improvement each day.
Boost Word Attack Skills and Play Vocabulary Card Games
Another important 6th-grade reading for comprehension goal is to expand vocabulary. Each week your child will play a card game that will work on their word identification skills or comprehension and vocabulary skills. The card games are specifically designed to improve your reading comprehension through expanding vocabulary and gaining a greater understanding of both words and word structure. Both of these skills improve your overall ability to read for comprehension. Your child will love these games and want to play them over and over again.
Develop Planning Skills that Stick
Your child will use fill-in-the-blank daily to-do worksheets and planning calendars to schedule out their days.
Your child will decide when they will do certain activities, and they will estimate how long each activity will take. After the activity is completed, they will reflect on how long it actually took and will start to build their time awareness and planning skills. Your child will strengthen their working memory, flexible thinking, and organization skills.
Research-Driven, Results-Proven Curriculum
Every component of our reading program is research-based and is specifically designed to boost your child’s reading skills. The program has been created by learning expert and board-certified educational therapist Bonnie Terry, M.Ed. She put together her 35+ years of working hands-on with children of all learning styles and abilities into this step-by-step program with custom-designed methods that you and your kids will see results each week.

Your child will gain confidence and be excited about reading. Your child will make substantial gains with these effective research-based techniques. Your child will be able to complete their assignments more quickly and easily. They will gain confidence and develop a lifelong love or reading and learning. Your child will do a variety of activities that teach and strengthen all of these skills. Your child will love doing the activities in the program and will want to do them again and again.
