The Reading Series Two Classroom Set contains suggested materials for delivering a full complement of Reading Series Two instruction to a small group. Each set includes one Reading Series Two Foundational Skills Teacher's Guide, six word chain card decks, one Reading Series Two Close Reading Teacher's Guide, and six copies of each Reading Series Two book. For whole-group instruction, the purchase of additional book sets is recommended.
Reading Series Two Foundational Skills Teacher’s Guides contain explicit, systematic, book-by-book instruction that supports teachers in the delivery of evidence-based foundational skills routines with a focus on silent e and r-controlled (Bossy-r) syllables; contrasting these syllable types with closed and open syllables; and reading and spelling words with silent e, Bossy-r, single long vowel, and soft c and g spellings. The instruction also supports teachers in introducing a variety of syllable division strategies to further students’ understanding of how to divide and read multisyllabic words and includes teacher-directed analysis of morphemes, such as inflectional suffixes and derivational affixes. Once students have been taught these important skills, they can apply what they know to Reading Series Two books. Foundational Skills Teacher's Guides include book-by-book progress monitoring assessments and periodic formative assessments.
