Merit Question and Answer
Third grade reading help


Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension
Submitted by: Parent
Grade Level: Elementary School
Competency: Below Level
I have a beautiful, bright 9 year old daughter who is able to recode just about any word but has very poor reading comprehension. I'm not sure what the problem is, but she isn't doing very well in school these days. Can you help?


Thank you for contacting us. Merit software has helped many children improve their reading comprehension skills and I believe we can do the same for your daughter.

I recommend that she starts with "Reading Comprehension Booster". In Reading Comprehension Booster students receive practice in using basic reading improvement strategies. They work with interactive exercises to determine main idea, make inferences, and draw conclusions.

Once she's worked through this program she may move on to "Read and Respond Punch". This program helps students improve reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.
