How to Teach the Course
Reading 200 builds character and develops reading skills through two readers, Helping Hands (now with full-color illustrations) and Happy Hearts. Phonics and other reading mechanics are systematically taught and reviewed. Exercises teach three types of comprehension: literal, inference, and application.
The LightUnit study uses LUs 201-205 with Helping Hands and LUs 206-210 with Happy Hearts. Students may do some exercises independently.
The Teacher’s Guide includes answers and class discussion ideas.
The Worksheets study requires more teacher involvement. It is in two booklets containing a total of 64 two-page lessons.
A Teacher’s Guide gives daily lesson notes with tips for introducing stories and discussing them with your class, and includes reproductions of student pages with answers filled in.
