Build language arts skills through the wonders of "living" literature! Keep skills within the context of literature, giving children a better understanding of how these concepts actually work, and reinforcing their correct usage. Designed for second-grade students, this program package includes the student activity book, the teacher's guide, and six student readers. Organized around the readers, the teacher's guide features step-by-step instructions for each day, an end-unit assessment, teacher notes, and answers to the student book in the margins. The student book (non-reproducible) contains the exercises, copywork, enrichment & independent work, additional literature passages, and hands-on activities designed to complement the lessons given in the teacher's guide.
