    1. The Language and Reading (LAR) color workbook. This contains language and grammar activities, poems, writing instruction, and additional reading materials to reinforce 2nd grade phonics and reading lessons.

The 2nd Grade Phonics and Reading program uses:

  • 28 Reading Books to take students to a new level of reading ability while reinforcing 2nd grade phonics. Some old favorites from the first grade level are back. Emily and Elaine Rose make and solve new problems. Jonathan has a Not-So-Great-Great-Week that he's ready to tell you about. Find out the secret of a dog's talent in Francis Dances. A boy named Benny finds out how little a penny can buy in Benny's Pennies. Two hedgehogs hunt for the ingredients to their favorite snack, then share the recipe with you in Hedgehog Fudge. A girl named Mary solves a big problem in Mary, Whiskers, and the Whale.
  • On the back of each book is a list of new and review words used in the story. Children can practice the words in isolation and then read them in the context of the story. These entertaining and humorous stories reinforce weekly 2nd grade phonics concepts. All books are printed in color with cardstock covers. Most books are fifteen to sixteen pages long. See a sample book: Bobcat Cowboys

  • The SE Test and Assessment Pack contains reproducible tests for the entire year.

Handwriting assignments are included in the Teacher's Manual. Check out the optional 2nd Grade McRuffy Handwriting books which provide additional tracing and practice exercises.
