My 11 year old daughter has always struggled with comprehension in school. She reads but has a hard time telling what she read about. Funny thing is that she's in the 5 th grade and reads at a 7th grade level. In math shes average. She reads 45 min 3 times a week. I know this effects her test taking skills and conversations with others. I've taking her to tutoring programs that were expensive and ther just a rip off! Anyone out their that can help?Answer Question

Here is a website that has activities to improve comprehension- http://www.fcrr.org/curriculum/studentCenterActivities45.shtm
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see a section called Comprehension and under it has 4 parts. Have her do a few activities a week and each week have her do a reading comprehension test to see how she is improving.
