All About Reading Level 2
It is finally here.
That means we can officially begin school.
Which we did, in style.
All About Learning Press has officially released Level 2 of their All About Reading curriculum. I think I can end the post now. I’m just so excited.
We Saw A Sneak Peak this Summer
Ezra connected the dots, when the first page he worked with was a certain silly anteater. He had seen this drawing before on our tour at the All About Learning Press headquarters.
All About Reading is a Hit
Using the All About Reading Level 2 curriculum ranks up there (for me) with our Apologia Science textbooks.
I could use it all day long.
In fact, All About Reading Level 2 is almost too fun.
(And now that I understand why Ezra lingers over our lesson – thanks Kidzmet – I enjoy All About Reading even more.)
Open Syllable/Closed Syllable
I had already re-learned some phonics principles with Asher’s All About Spelling. But All About Reading Level 2 actually super-glued the concept into my brain.
Let’s see if you can get it.
Watch. The open door image will be used for the word, “so.”
As a result, the door in Ezra’s workbook page stayed open.
But the word, “mop,” for example, receives the closed door image.
Well, if a vowel is “open,” that means it is NOT followed by a consonant.
Thus, the sound that the vowel makes is LONG.
If the word contains a vowel that is followed by a consonant, the vowel makes the SHORT sound.
