This week’s featured learning curriculum:  Reading Kingdom: Stage 2 – Reading & Writing Program for Students in Grades 3 – 5

Reading Kingdom Stage 2 is an incredibly effective reading and writing program for students in grades 3 to 5 as well as older students who are experiencing difficulties. It is the only program available that features Dr. Marion Blank’s Integrated Skills Method which uses innovative techniques to teach reading, writing and comprehension in an integrated fashion so that they complement and reinforce each other. The result is that students become successful readers and writers.

The program has three levels that teach students to become adept at dealing with the higher level reading and writing skills required in key subjects such as literature, social studies and science. These subjects entail reading about complex topics with lengthy elaboration that cannot be communicated effectively in a few paragraphs. That’s why this material expands to what are commonly referred to as “chapter books.” From about third or fourth grade on, this type of reading is the mainstay of the curriculum and skill with this material is the single, most important factor in whether or not a child will be successful in school.

Early reading instruction typically involves short, simple content. But that type of instruction can leave students unprepared for the transition to the material they are going to be dealing with day in and day out for the rest of their school careers. Unfortunately, relatively little is done to provide them with the instruction they need to handle more advanced reading.

Reading Kingdom Stage 2 has been created to smooth this critical transition. Designed for children who are reading at third to fifth grade level, it offers four books at each of the three levels. The books that are used are from Levels 3, 4 and 5 of the Random House Step Into Reading books — an excellent series that provides a wide range of interesting topics.

At all levels, each teaching session involves three key components:

  • Reading: smooth decoding of sustained sequences of texts.
  • Writing: accurate writing of the type of sentences found in meaningful topics.
  • Comprehension: understanding and relating the key content (“the main idea”) in the material that has been read.
