2nd Grade


Watson Works Phonics & Spelling 2nd Grade reinforces the syllable patterns and word structures taught in 1st grade, and builds on those skills so that by the end of 2nd grade, students will:


•   Continue to decode and blend sounds to read and spell words with the 6 syllable types, including multisyllabic words

•   Continue to improve word structure identification in order to learn more complex words


•   Apply correct punctuation and capitalization to words and sentences


•   Increase knowledge of vocabulary strategies, such as: alphabetical order, multiple-meaning words, synonyms, antonyms, homophones, compound words, and base words & affixes


•   Build knowledge of grammar skills, including: subjects & predicates, types of sentences, parts of speech, quotes, compound sentences, comma usage, and contractions


•   Continue to improve handwriting using the D’Nealian style


•    Read and spell 150 high frequency words

"I have been using the Watson Works program in my classroom since January and have seen amazing growth in my students. One of my students went from a Kindergarten reading level to second grade this year. That's amazing to me!" - Tayna, 2nd Grade
