Quizzes make learning fun! There is no quicker way to learn about Reading in Middle School - Grades 6, 7 and 8
In middle school, you’ll be doing a lot of reading. In English Language lessons, you may cover such books as Little Women, The Diary of Anne Frank and A Christmas Carol. You might be surprised to learn that all this reading is not because the teachers think those particular books are so good, they want to share them with everyone they meet. What the teachers (and indeed the schools) are trying to do is give you an all-round understanding of how to read text.
Having the ability to understand what has been written is not as simple as reading stuff aloud. Oh no. You must remember what has been written and understand what is being conveyed through the written word. Now that might sound a bit difficult. Actually, it’s not at all – you’ve been learning to understand the English language (whether written or spoken) since you first gurgled ‘gaga’ at your Mom.
Now you are older and it’s time to really test your verbal reasoning skills. If you like those pesky puzzles such as…
Auntie Hester and Uncle Fester went to Chester for a picnic. They traveled for two hours doing an average speed of 35mph. They set off at 10am in an easterly direction and didn’t have to stop for gas. Using the information given, what was the filling in their bagels?
…then you are going to love our Reading quizzes. They will stretch your comprehension skills and really ensure you have understood the information supplied. It’s quite like playing detective, except that your clues are words.
Are you ready with a notebook and pencil? These two items may come in very handy when playing our quizzes.
By the way, it was a cream cheese & bacon filling in the bagels – did you get it right?
