Overview - EDMARK READING PROG LVL 2 SPELLING 2ND ED
Edmark Reading Program Level 2 Supplemental Materials are designed to be used in conjuction with the Edmark Reading Program Level 2. They build, reinforce, and target skills learned in the program. Edmark Reading Program is built especially for students with developmental disabilities, autism, learning disabilities; those in Title 1 programs and ESL programs; and those who lack vocabulary development, struggle with phonics, or are nonreaders.
The 140 reproducible Comprehension activities provide an extensive amount of word recognition practice and comprehension reinforcement. These activities include a variety of formats in which the students read and comprehend words and phrases. Exercise types include cloze, reading/writing response, short answers, and multiple choice. The students choose from answers consisting of words. Students will enjoy completing the assignment on their own, with a buddy, or with a family member.
The 53 reproducible Spelling activities provide both reinforcement for recognition of new reading words and a beginning spelling experience. A Spelling activity follows every five new words learned, plus there are 13 review activities. The student can write or sign the answers.
The 199 reproducible Homework activities are a fun way to reinforce classroom learning. Many students require extra practice with word recognition and reading after school to retain what they learned. The students also enjoy demonstrating their reading ability to parents and family. Eight different types of homework activities provide word recognition practice in formats that differ from the activities the student practiced during class. The students will generalize their word recognition and reading skills to a variety of typefaces and handwriting, and new situations.
The 58 reproducible Take-Away Readers are eight-page stories with photographs that illustrate the stories and emphasize words students have learned in current and previous lessons. The readers engage students in fun, confidence-building activities that extend literacy experiences at school and home. Students can read the stories aloud to staff and peers at school, and then take the readers home to read aloud to family and friends. In this way the students can experience the pleasure of sharing their reading achievements.
These reproducible activities reinforce the words taught in the program and help students generalize and demonstrate their reading skills. Bingo consists of 200 bingo boards and 200 bingo cards. The bingo cards can be copied and cut apart or copied onto business card sheets.
5 Additional Lesson Plan/Record Books Level 2
The Lesson Plan/Record Book serves as a tool for continuous progress monitoring of student achievement. It is also a convenient lesson planner and a guide to the sequence of activities within each Edmark Reading Program lesson. One booklet per student is needed. Each Lesson Plan/Record Book covers the entire Level 2 program.
15 Additional Mastery Tests Level 2
The Mastery Test is a domain referenced, nationally field-tested instrument designed specifically to assess the performance of students using the Edmark Reading Program. This highly reliable and relevant test consists of four subtests that closely mirror the instructional format of the Edmark Reading Program. The Discrimination and Picture/Phrase Match subtests can be administered in a group setting. The Word Recognition and Oral Reading subtests require individual administration by teachers or paraprofessionals.Detailed information on administration, scoring, and interpreting results is provided in the Mastery Test Manual.
Stories Level 2
The 100 Stories engage students in reading short, fictional works illustrated with full-color art. The stories enable the students to practice reading words they have learned to recognize, but in a new context. These engaging stories contain only words that have been learned in previous lessons. Possessives, contractions, and hyphenated words are used in some of the stories. As they are introduced, it is necessary to explain their usage. Compound words are introduced in Story 10. Discussion questions located at the back of each book allow the teacher to check the students' understanding. Students of all ages will find it fun and amusing to discuss the stories, illustrations, and words with their teach-ers and fellow students, thereby extending their comprehension and use of the Edmark Reading Program words.
