Transitioning from Kindergarten to 3 grade has been difficult for me. My kids are doing incredibly poor in the Comprehension part of the Treasures Unit theme tests. Can you give me any tips on how I can help my class improve their comprehension? I started having them find the topic sentence in each paragraph and underlining it as well as using the QAR-question answer relationships for each question. I feel as though the underlining of the topic sentence has thrown them off, because they did worse this time around than the 1st test (before I got into the classroom). I'm scared of getting fired.
