Working with 2R Readers

This week, one of my readers reached the 2R level.  He was filled with excitement as I introduced some of the books he can read at this level.

While reading with him, I found there were still just a few phonic areas that needed to be reviewed.  I pulled out the practice page and game in the 2R bundle for his specific skill and was able to show him exactly the piece he needed.  He had a blast playing the new game and even asked to stay in from recess with a friend to play.  (Yes, we are in Minnesota so students do ask to stay in on cold, cold days.)  I sent the word list and game home with him to practice at home.  When learning is fun, it doesn’t feel like work.

I love that I am able to focus my instruction on exactly what students at this level need thanks to the 2R bundle.  This is an extensive bundle - with 103 pages.  This bundle includes: rules of syllabication, tricky vowels, tricky consonants, abbreviations, prefixes, suffixes, adjectives, adverbs, high frequency words (outlaws).

Check out our free sample from the 2R bundle - prefixes and suffixes.
What fun things do you do to teach prefixes and suffixes?
