Key Skills Your Child Will Build
and Why They’re Important

Decoding

Decoding is the ability to translate written words into speech. It is the foundation for all other reading skills. In 2nd grade, children build on first-grade phonics, learning more advanced letter-sound matching skills to read longer, harder words. They also learn word-attack strategies to break down unfamiliar or difficult words into smaller parts.

When your 2nd grader develops strong decoding skills in our program, he or she will be able to recognize words quickly and figure out new and unfamiliar words easily. Over time and with practice, your child will decode even challenging words with confidence. He or she will feel a real sense of accomplishment and motivation to read even more.

Fluency

Fluency is the ability to read naturally and smoothly, without having to stop to sound out words. Achieving fluency is a milestone kids reach by developing strong decoding skills and getting a lot of practice reading.

In our 2nd grade program, your child will become a more fluent reader, which makes reading easier and more enjoyable. Fluent readers don’t need to spend much time figuring out individual words, so they can focus on the meaning of stories they read.

Comprehension

Comprehension – the ability to understand what you read – is the goal of reading. In 2nd grade, children learn to visualize what’s happening in a story, identify with the characters, follow the events in the story, and anticipate what’s going to happen next. They learn to think and talk about what they read with others.

In our 2nd grade program, students develop strong comprehension, which makes reading meaningful and enjoyable. This will motivate your child to keep reading and give him or her a big boost in all subjects at school.

Love of Reading

2nd grade is full of challenges when it comes to reading. Developing a positive attitude toward reading and a love of books supports children and motivates them to read more often.

When your child builds new reading skills in the 2nd grade program, he or she will find reading easier and more fun. Your child’s enthusiasm for reading will grow, and he or she will want to read more for enjoyment. As your child reads more, he or she will become a stronger and stronger reader, developing a habit of reading for pleasure that leads to a lifetime of academic and personal benefits.
