Reading Programs

In this program your child will become a fluent, enthusiastic reader. Children learn phonics skills through instruction that is tailored to their reading level, and they make significant gains in fluency and comprehension.

The program includes five weeks of classroom instruction led by an experienced teacher, and independent reading in some of the best books written for second graders. Between the weekly lessons, your child will continue to build skills through interactive online instruction customized to your child’s reading level.

Learn Phonics

Students in this program learn phonics and word-attack skills through in-class instruction and by practicing with interactive online lessons tailored to their reading level. These engaging lessons feature enjoyable exercises that will keep your child engaged and motivated.

Develop Fluency

In this program, students learn to read more smoothly, quickly, and easily. This will allow your child to devote full attention to the story, which leads to stronger comprehension and a love of reading. In each class, the teacher leads students in fluency training exercises. At home, your child will practice reading fluently with engaging interactive lessons.

Develop Comprehension

In class, your child will participate in comprehension-building discussions and will learn to recognize story structure, identify with characters, and follow events. At home, your child will continue to build skills through interactive lessons that provide comprehension instruction and build motivation to read.


Independent Reading

Your child will read nine wonderful second-grade books in class and at home during the program, including four take-home books that are yours to keep. Reading these books successfully will give your child great skills practice and a big head start on second grade.
