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 about the reading passages that they have read in the program two days after they have read them. 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.
Learn phonics with follow-along 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 follow-along video lessons.
The lessons help your child identify which sounds correspond to which letters in words and are multisensory.
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.
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.
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 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.
Research-Driven, Results-Proven Curriculum
Every component of our reading program is research-based and is specifically designed to boost your child’s reading skills. The program has been created by learning expert and board-certified educational therapist Bonnie Terry, M.Ed. She put together her 35+ years of working hands-on with 2nd-grade students of all learning styles and abilities into this step-by-step program.
This reading program curriculum had been developed with custom-designed methods that you and your kids will see results each week.
Develop a Love of Reading
Reading will start to make sense to your child. Your child will develop a strong foundation of reading and overall learning skills.
These skills include print awareness, phonemic awareness, letter recognition, phonics skills, and sight word recognition.
