This workbook is Book 2 in the Starting Comprehension: Starting Phonetically strand. Designed for students who learn to read most easily through the phonetic-analytic methods, most of the featured vocabulary is structured to promote reading for meaning. Book 2 introduces CVC words with short 'u' and 'i' and some sight words such as 'and,' 'he,' and 'to.' Questions will have students responding to questions on the semantic, literal, inferential, and organizational levels. 95 non-reproducible pages, softcover. Grade 2.
Young children learn to read through phonetic and visual processes; the Starting Comprehension series features exercises based on both of these needs. The two strands in this series reflect the two types of cues that beginning readers may gravitate towards: phonetic cues (letter-sound patterns and phonetic rules) and semantic cues (pictures and word meanings).
