In order to teach Level 2 to a single student, you will need these items:
All About Reading Level 2 Materials
All About Reading Level 2 Materials includes the Teacher’s Manual, one Student Packet (which contains the activity book, flashcards, and stickers), and two readers.
Reading Interactive Kit
The Reading Interactive Kit provides the multisensory components for the All About Reading program. This is a one-time purchase, and you will use the same kit for all four levels of All About Reading. It comes in two versions: Basic and Deluxe. Visit Reading Interactive Kits for complete information.
Physical Letter Tiles or Letter Tiles App
The Reading Interactive Kit contains everything you need, including the physical letter tiles, but there are two additional items to consider. If you plan to teach mainly with the physical letter tiles, you'll need to purchase a 2' x 3' magnetic white board from a store such as Walmart of Staples. For an easy-to-use, portable alternative, our Letter Tiles App is available as a separate purchase.
Teaching Multiple Students?
All About Reading makes it easy to teach multiple students! If you're teaching more than one child, you'll need to purchase a few individual products for each child.
Your student will learn exciting new concepts, including three-letter blends, the jobs of Silent E, new phonograms, and methods for decoding multisyllable words – and continue to establish a firm foundation for a lifetime of learning. Every component of reading is taught: decoding (phonics and structural analysis), vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Below is a sampling in each area.
Learn phonograms WH, EE, ER, AR, OR, ED, OY, OI, AW, AU, OW, and OU
Read words containing the new phonograms, such as whale, sheep, herd, farm, horn, toy, boil, saw, haul, flower, and found
Read words with long I or O before two consonants, as in find and gold
Read words with soft C, as in race
Read words with soft G, as in gem
Learn the first four jobs of Silent E
Decoding (Structural Analysis)
Identify base words
Read contractions, such as they’ll
Learn syllable division rules for reading multisyllable words
Read words with past tense ending ed, including all three sounds, as in wanted, snowed, and chipped
Discuss new words in the context of the story and one’s own life
Level 2 has 57 lessons. Please know that the lessons in All About Reading are not meant to be completed in one day.
In fact, some lessons may take a week or more to finish. A number of variables contribute to how quickly a lesson can be completed: your student’s age, attention span, prior experience, the difficulty of the concept being taught, and the length of the stories.
What if I have more than one student?
If you are teaching more than one student at a time, you will need to order additional Student Packets for each student. The Level 2 Materials contain enough for teaching one student.
If you will be reusing your Level 2 Materials for future students, you can reuse the Student Packets. Download extra consumable components of the Level 2 Student Packet here:
