Reading comprehension is the ability to read a text, process it and try

to comprehend the meaning. Reading is an important skill in our daily life

because it can give so many advantages for us. Through reading, pupils can

obtain plenty of information which can expand their knowledge and learning.

Besides, in learning, being able to comprehend reading passage is a must.

When the teacher gives text for the pupils to answer some questions, they

possibly cannot answer it well if they do not comprehend reading passage

well. It is like two aspects which cannot be separated. It is like fire and fume

two things that is inseparable. That is a fact in comprehending text that is

absolutely needed. Related with the present study, reading comprehension is

not as simple as people’s imagination to achieve. There are aspects that must

be considered if the teacher wants to successfully conduct the teaching

learning process. Reading comprehension is an effort to understand, evaluate

and also recognize the author’s ideas of reading text (Mc Whorter,2005:3). It

is very important to be mastered by the students because in reading

comprehension, the students are expected to get the main ideas and the detail

information from the text. Reading skill is very important in taking a test.

Therefore, pupils must have a good reading comprehension if they really want

to pass the exams and then graduate. Meanwhile, Pressley describes that

reading focuses on fire literacy domains as essential to successful reading

development, phonemes, awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and

comprehension. Pupils can get many vocabularies that they need by reading.

Moreover, it can be applied in speaking and writing as well, however, reading


is not simply a process of getting the meaning of what the readers read

because the readers have to interpret what they have read and comprehend.

In addition, Johnson (2008:109) states that reading is the act of

creating meaning with the text. This process will require the use of

background knowledge, Vocabulary, experience of the readers to help them in

comprehending the written text. In reading comprehension, almost all of the

pupils have difficulties in comprehending the contents and the components in

reading such as 3 topic of the material is really new for the pupils and they do

not know what actually the text tells about such as getting the main idea,

finding the meaning of a word, phrase or sentence, and textual reference in a

text. Reading was the major problem that was found in the society today. They

had law motivation in reading.They were popssibly aware if the teacher

always remind and motivate them that reading could train their comprehension

besides, expanding their insight.



The objective of this study is to examine the reasons that affects the reading

and comprehension of Grade IV Pupils.

Reading means many things to many people. It can be one of the most

rewarding, preoccupation of the individual. His horizons and making it possible to

partake of means accumulated experience and achievement through the ages. It is

an active dialogue between the author and the reader and it is the role on one’s

success in school. Reading is one of the most important skills in English than an

individual must need to master. It is a toll subject for it is prerequisite of all

learning areas. It serves as a gateway to every child to learn the different subject

because a child has a difficulty in reading, he may encounter also difficulties in all

subject areas. At the same time, where the technology becomes an advance pupils

have become addicted to the modern facilities and gadgets. Many of them prefer

to play online games, text, chat in the internet rather than read a book. Too much

engagement caused pupils to have poor level of reading and comprehension.

Comprehension is reading with understanding. It is decoding meaning from

the printed text not only in single words or sentences but also of the inter

relationships among the sentences in discourse.

speed and comprehension skills. Pupils cannot answer questions about the topic he

great influence to Filipinos and especially to the students. The explosion of cell

phone use in the last few decades has been astounding; In most school, most

students own a cellphone whatever the rules are at their school about cellphone,

students use them. Sometimes they are caught by their teachers, the rules are at

their school about cellphones, pupils use them.

This distracts students to understand their lessons and find it difficult when it

comes to reading comprehension. Most of the times pupils spend time texting,

chatting and playing games. Because of these, They don’t have time to read and

make studies as a hobbit.
