Cloze Passages book 1&2 Bundle

Original price was: $69.90.Current price is: $65.00.
Designed to help students develop their comprehension skills and prepare for the NSW Selective High School Placement Test A cloze passage requires students to make sense of the meaning and grammar of the surrounding words in order to fill in gaps in the text. In this book, designed for Years 5 and 6, students are challenged to match deleted sentences with the correct gaps in a given passage. Texts are authored specifically to require students to use a range of higher-order comprehension skills, including identifying the main idea and making connections between ideas.

An introductory chapter offers tips and tricks on how to approach the activities – for example, identifying topic sentences and patterns of text organisation, and understanding connectives and other details – before providing some practice questions with worked solutions. Students will then work through 30 cloze practice units across 3 themed chapters: Earth Wind Fire Water, Technology, and Human Society and Culture. Each chapter is designed to increase in difficulty.
