PCI Reading Program- Level Two
Designed as the next step for students who have completed Level One. It teaches 140 additional words, advancing students from a 1.0 reading level to a 2.0–2.5 reading level. While Level Two’s focus is still on teaching words through visual discrimination, it also introduces students to wrapped text, common inflectional endings, such as –s, –ing, and –ed, and compound words.
Words Taught in Groups of Ten
Level Two uses the same five-step lesson cycle that students became familiar with in Level One, but it teaches the words in groups of ten rather than five. Level Two includes 14 full-color books, one for every ten words learned. Each book features a different character in a typical everyday setting. Books range in length from 12 to 16 pages and move from one paragraph per page to up to three paragraphs per page.

New Instructional Components
A set of 14 reproducible stories is provided to help students review all 140 words they learned in Level One. In addition, Level Two features a new instructional step in the Guided Word Practice lessons called Skill Discovery. The Skill Discovery Lessons Book offers scripted lessons that teach students how to read wrapped text, interpret end punctuation marks, identify and read inflectional endings, and identify and read compound words. Word Strips and specially designed Word Windows are also included to help students practice reading words with inflectional endings and compound words.
