We've got you covered

Reading, language arts, and writing skills come together in Lone Star Learning’s Target Reading and Writing! Students spend a few minutes each day focusing on a weekly reading passage and corresponding daily questions. Students are then challenged in a variety of language arts activities, from writing prompts with graphic organizers to multiple-choice questions to sentence correction, all spiraling through revising, editing, elaboration, and language arts skills. All materials are provided in an easy-to-implement format that engages students and works seamlessly alongside your existing program.

I am so impressed with the Target Reading program I purchased for my 4th-grade class. I am teaching at a tier 4, title 1 school. About 30% of my students passed STAAR last year and I knew they would need some extra practice if they were going to have any hope of improving this year. This program has interesting stories every week that are fun for the students to read. They never get bored with the materials provided. I love the sentence building exercise that they do every day because not only are they learning how to build good, descriptive sentences but they are learning what nouns, verbs, and adjectives are. And this is something they practice EVERY day. The questions of the day are higher level thinking and require the students to refer back to the story for details. I can’t say enough good things about this program. Money well spent, and I will be using it for years to come.
