This workbook contains worksheets which accompany many of the lessons from the Teacher Guide for Unit 1. Each worksheet is identified by the lesson number in which it is used. The worksheets in this book do not include written instructions for students because the instructions would have words that are not decodable. Teachers will explain these worksheets to the students orally, using the instructions in the teacher guides. The workbook is a student component, which means each student should have a workbook.
This book has been created for use by students learning to read with the TN Foundational Skills Curriculum Supplement. Readability levels are suitable for early readers. The book has also been carefully leveled in terms of its “code load,” or the number of spellings used in the stories.
Assessment and Remediation Guide
Welcome to the Grade 2 Assessment and Remediation Guide. While there are many competencies required to be a successful reader able to comprehend, analyze, and synthesize what one reads, one of the key prerequisite components is the ability to automatically apply knowledge of the English letter-sound correspondences when reading unfamiliar text. You will find resources in this Guide to help you provide additional instruction and remediation to students who enter Grade 2 with gaps in their code knowledge and fluency.
This Guide is not intended for use with students who are significantly below grade level. Students in this category will need intensive individualized instruction during their entire language arts period to bring them up to grade level. The Guide is intended for use with students who have mastered some or most of the letter-sound correspondences in the English language, but who are not yet fluent readers because they lack specific decoding skills.
