The Reading Rods Simple Sentences kit helps students reinforce, practice, and master key literacy skills. Activities focus on using high-frequency and sight words; grammar, usage, and punctuation; and building and revising sentences to convey meaning. The color-coding of the rods provides quick visual cues for recognizing parts of speech and punctuation, and applying this understanding to composing and improving sentences.
