In this program, students become fluent readers: they learn to read more smoothly, quickly, and easily. Reading fluently is the most important skill second graders learn. It allows them to devote their full attention to the story, which leads to stronger comprehension and a love of reading. In each class, the teacher leads students in fluency training exercises. At home, your child will practice reading fluently by working with an interactive instructional DVD featuring Fluent Reading with Bookman. Click here to learn more.
Your child will receive The Adventures of Snail at School to keep and read at home, as well as an interactive instructional DVD that accompanies the book.

The DVD also includes Book Club News, a feature that provides comprehension instruction. Click here to learn more.
