The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between levels of reading comprehension strategy use, reading attitudes, and the amount of reading per year among elementary school students. The study was conducted with 1316 students (649 girls and 667 boys) attending the fourth and fifth grades of 15 elementary schools in Denizli, Turkey. Stratified SamplingMethod was employed to obtain data using Reading Attitude Scale (RAS) and Reading Comprehension Strategies Scale (RCSS). The analyses indicate that reading attitude is a significant predictor of the level of reading comprehension strategies used by students (R2 ¼ 0.44). The findings show that there is a negative and low-level relationship (r ¼ 70.054) between daily time spent reading and the level of strategy used, and a positive and low-level relationship (r ¼ 0.01) between the level of strategy used and the number of books that a child reads per year.
