Hi Shir,
Reading comprehension relies on rich vocabulary and understanding of syntax, context and structure.
I believe in learning through experience, therefore "letting the kids play" with words, brainstorming with them about the origin of new words, letting them explore rather than recite - i believe is a way to produce good readers, perhaps even good writers as well...
good luck!

Dear Shir,

As stated above, vocabulary is the key for improving reading comprehension.

Maybe these worksheet can help you:
