Let's Get Crazy!!
I created Crazy for Comprehension to help educators and parents supplement classroom and home schooled instruction with high quality activities that enrich reading and writing skills. It's never too early to learn to write well and read effectively. Every activity offered on this Web site has been tested in the classroom or with private students. Activities can be used in multiple ways: as an in-class "do now," a partner or station activity, an assessment tool, or homework. As an additional bonus, many worksheets highlight multiple skills, allowing educators to approach proficiency from several angles. Some products offered by Crazy for Comprehension are correlated to Common Core State Standards.
The Reading and Writing Connection
Reading and writing are not exclusive. One affects the other. My personal teaching and tutoring experience has shown me that students who like to read are usually good writers, and students who are good writers usually like to read. Both are needed to achieve well-rounded academic success. As I write in my book, Literacy Begins at Home: 50 Ways to Help Your Child Excel in Language Arts, "Poor reading and writing skills further impact the grades a child earns in other content area, especially those subjects having a heavy reading component, like social studies and science."
Reading and Writing: Two Sides of the Same Coin
Since students who are a little crazy for comprehension are usually a little crazy for grammar and sentence structure too, this site includes writing activities in addition to reading activities. And of course, each activity - whether reading or writing - has an answer key that is included at no extra charge.
Please check back from time-to-time. New activities will frequently be appearing on this Web site. And, if there is an activity that you would find helpful that you aren't seeing at Crazy for Comprehension, please email us. If you need it, other educators probably do as well, and we may be able to create a worksheet for you for little or no cost.
If you would like to be notified when new activities become available (or to contact us for comments or questions), please send an email to email@example.com.
