Looking for a fun, nature-inspired, and hands-on curriculum to give your child a strong foundation in reading and writing skills?
By integrating multisensory and nature-based activities with explicit, sequential phonics instruction based on the Orton-Gillingham method, Wild Reading Level 2 will help your child become a proficient reader without being dry or boring.
Wild Reading Level 2 helps children progress from reading short vowel words to reading words with long vowels, two-syllables, vowel teams, and R-controlled vowels! Children will learn how to break up words into their components, identify syllable patterns and types, and syllable division.
Students learn each phonic skill at the word level, then work with these words at the sentence level, before finally reading them in longer texts. Each week includes two hands-on word activities, a sentence activity, fluency review, and multisensory dictation.
The Wild Reader is a new feature in Level 2. It includes 22 original nature-inspired decodable stories for independent reading.
In addition, Level 2 includes the new Fluency Word Cards, which are perfect for quickly reviewing phonics skills and when laminated are great for throwing in your day pack for outdoor adventure!
Reading comprehension skills are introduced through reading quality picture books, relaxed discussions, and activities. The comprehension skill topics covered include characters, problem and solution, point of view, making connections, summarizing, inferencing, and more. Extensive book lists are included.
Each week features a nature-inspired writing activity to inspire new writers to get creative and write!
Activities are designed to offer families flexibility in the amount of outdoor instruction incorporated, and how they choose to practice skills such as dictation. Two weekly nature enrichment activities make learning fun and help children learn more about the natural world. Highlights include a study of bird communication, decomposition experiments, and experiencing how seeds spread by walking around outside in your socks to see what sticks to them!
