ELA- SuperKids Reading Program

In Unit 1, the Superkids characters reflect the developmental stages and interest of real students. Children identify with the Superkids adventures, their challenges, and their victories. Now that the Superkids have reached second grade we will see how they handle issues surrounding the school and interpersonal relationships, with emotional complexities children face and they mature.

As we read about the Superkids we will discover that they do many things as students. We will be reading the decodable reader, Super magazine, and our book club book. Also, we will be working on our word workbook. We will be also be working in centers for differentiating instruction.  

 In Unit 2, students will continue to blossom and build strong word attack and spelling skills.

In the word Work Book, children meet more variable phonetic elements such as er, ir, ur aw , all  and aul. Unit 2 also provides explicit instruction of base words and endings –s, -es,-er, -ed and –ing enabling children to further improve their word attack, spelling , grammar and usage skills as well as learn the meaning of new words. They will also extend their understanding of homonyms and sharpen their ability to use context to figure out unknown words.

In the stores in the Decodable reader, The Superkids engage in a class project to invent things. A new boy joins the Superkids and the Superkids learn some lesson about friendship and working together.

  For writing assignments, students will be learning the writing process and different types of writing through interactive notebooks.
