Reading Fun Workbook for Year 2

Reading is the conversion of graphemes (letters) into phonemes (sounds). Spelling is the opposite. Children learn to spell by remembering the look of some words, particularly sight words that do not make sense to ‘sound out.’ They also need to learn the sounds of letters, as well as syllables, in order to make correct sound/spelling choices when reading and spelling. As they begin to read more difficult words, they understand they must decode the letter sounds to make new words make sense, particularly when words do not relate to objects they know and recognise.

This is the purpose of this workbook - it has been specifically designed as a great practice resource of many key reading and spelling skills that will help teachers understand the importance of teaching phonics and whole language approaches. Each activity has been carefully selected to provide Year 2 children with an interesting variety of reading, spelling and vocabulary activities and is ideal for teachers to use as models for further practice skills.
