2nd-Grade Reading Program

Hand Selected 2nd-Grade Reading Program Selections

Your child will feel empowered by reading two different 2nd-grade reading program engaging stories. We’ve chosen the best reading program curriculum that will open your son or daughter’s world of reading. These selections were chosen to help your child learn to read independently. 

Each week, you will get two digital reading selections for your child to read aloud. Your child will learn how to talk about and summarize the stories they have read.

2nd-Grade Reading Comprehension Long Term Memory

Build Long Term Memory Skills

The 2nd-grade reading program is more than just reading. Your entering second-grader will learn how to take notes! The act of writing is critical for building long term memory skills. To make it easy, we have simple, custom-designed graphic organizers, where they just fill-in-the-blanks. Graphic organizers have been shown to improve memory skills by making it easy to organize ideas.

Your child will answer questions to the reading passages that they have read in the program two days after they have read it. Your child will learn to remember and recall what they have read by reviewing notes that they have written or dictated about the reading.

It is often easy to answer questions immediately after reading a passage, but we push their abilities by asking them the questions a day or two later with only being able to review their notes.

Reading Fluency Training

Reading fluency training is one of the most important strategies used to build your child’s success with reading. This is your child’s ability to read with speed and accuracy without conscious attention to the mechanics of reading. This is a critical skill as your child moves into the upper grades and the reading material becomes longer and more complicated. 

Our research-proven reading fluency drills work on training your eyes to move more efficiently and smoothly left to right. They also improve your kids’ visual processing speed, or how fast they can retrieve and process what they see. You and your kids will love seeing their improvement each day.

2nd Grade Spelling and Phonics

Learn beginning phonics with interactive video spelling lessons.

Your entering second-grader will learn how we put letters together to make words. They will learn how to spell by spelling patterns through our interactive video lessons. Your kids will learn and practice the phonetic patterns of English through each lesson, spelling activity worksheets, puzzles, printables, and games.

Each week, your child will learn to spell ten new words according to their phonetic spelling patterns. They will start to be able to identify patterns across words.

Planning Study Skills Weekly Calendar Graphic Organizers

Build Executive Function Skills

Executive function skills are the decision making and planning skills that we all need in our daily lives. Your child will help decide when they will do certain activities and they will estimate how long each activity will take. After the activity is completed, they will reflect on how long it actually took and will start to build their time awareness and planning skills.

2nd-Grade Reading Program Brain-Body Activities

2nd-Grade Reading Program Includes Brain-Body Activities

The brain and body work together as a machine, one designed to move through space efficiently, walking, moving, and maintaining balance. This connection allows you to see the shapes, sizes, and positions of letters on a page as well as improve eye tracking skills. As we improve the brain-body connection, reading and overall learning improve.

We have different activities each week that your kids will think are just fun games, but the activities actually work on improving their motor skills and brain-body connection.

Reviews

  1. My daughter is begging me to do your reading program again to strengthen her skills. The guides for note-taking and how to pick out important information was only second to the fun activities each day last year. We look forward to seeing what’s in store for this year!

    – Amy D.

  2. Your videos make it so easy for my kids to actually see and hear how letters and sounds come together to make words. They are improving my kids’ spelling and reading skills. Such a bonus! And, they love playing the games, too.

    – Sky B.

  3. Ma’am, you are a blessing. I am on my 2nd year as a kindergarten teacher and your technique eased my doubts about being effective towards teaching children who have zero spelling and reading skills.

    – Gracie K.

  4. My son couldn’t write or spell. Our lives changed when we found your system. It was just what we needed. It was a 100% turnaround! I noticed the improvement immediately, but it became more dramatic as time went on. He came home with smiles. He started liking school. He became a confident learner. In fact, by the time he was in 4th grade, he was at the top of his class.

    – Margie K.

  5. I am very grateful for having found Scholar Within. As a homeschooling mom, I am always in search of good materials that fit the needs of my children. Scholar Within has been especially beneficial for my 7th grader, his greatest challenges have been spelling, and clarity while reading out loud. I was amazed at the way in which Scholar Within combines phonics, spelling, and reading comprehension. My son has advanced significantly in these areas since we started using the program. He loves the reading selections and finds them very educative and interesting.

    Great program. I highly recommend it to any parent.

    – Karla C.

  6. The Monday exercise of reading and taking notes followed with questions on those selections on Wednesday is a really great help for my kids. This lets them work on their comprehension skills. It has made a big difference! The whole program has been a good experience for us. Thank you very much!

    – Sabrina D.

  7. Thank you for partnering with me to help my daughters improve their reading skills. They are really enjoying your program and are excited about becoming more confident readers. I am loving it already! I signed up my twin daughters, who are homeschooled.

    – Lisa G.

  8. I really do like the reading fluency drills. They are making a difference for my son. They are so easy to fit into our day. The thing we didn’t like was all the printing we had to do each week.

    – Cynthia B.

  9. My son is doing well and shows improvements with the reading drills each day. He is also doing well with all the work that is presented. His overall work is improving too. He’s even able to find spelling errors now. Woohoo!

    – Jennifer P.

  10. Thanks for your help throughout this process. You are so responsive whenever I have a question or concern. I see activities on the different levels for my kids which makes them easy to follow. This has been an awesome experience for our family.

    – Kameron F.

  11. Jake is doing well and enjoying the program. I’m so pleased with how he has improved and that he likes doing our sessions! Thanks so much!

    – Cathy H.

  12. We are really liking the summer reading program. I appreciate that you moved my daughter’s level to make the program even more effective for her. Thanks so much.

    – Wendy F.

  13. I did find the videos and activities interesting. There was a bit too much printing for me.

    – Megan W.

  14. We really loved the program. Thanks so much for all of the neat assignments and games to enhance executive function skills.

    – Calvin T.

  15. Even when I’m not sure how to reason/explain to my son about a reading comprehension answer, all I have to do is ask you. You are so good at giving quick replies that are easy for me to tell my son. Thank you!

    – Niiro T.

  16. My children took the Scholar Within summer reading program. I was impressed with how user-friendly and intuitive the program is.

    – Wendi L.

  17. My son’s first drill trend is definitely going in the right direction. His words per minute increased by 17%, and his mistakes decreased, and this is only the first week. I can’t believe he had that much progress already. Thank you for this program and thanks so much for being available for questions, too!

    – Katherine W.

  18. The videos made all the difference in the world. The spelling videos showed me step by step the structure. You really made spelling easy for my kids. I just keep working with the video, the spelling, the way you explain it, they watch it over and over. It really sinks in. Your materials help build their self-esteem up. They’re short quick activities. You can get so much done in half an hour.

    – Regina A.

  19. Your program has so many great things in it. The plan for an excursion was a brilliant idea! We made a trip to the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis and to the Science Museum in St. Louis. I have seen improvements and I have gained insight into how my daughter reads and processes (or lack thereof) the reading assignments. Thank you so very much! The whole-brain approach to improving reading has been very insightful.

    – Christine P.

  20. Last summer my 3 kids were enrolled in both Scholar Within and another major reading program. Scholar Within had more fun activities and games and really focused on building the underlying skills to really prepare for the upcoming year. The other program didn’t build skills in the same way and was less interactive in my home.
