Sunrise 2nd Edition

Sunrise 2nd Edition Reading 100 is a sequel to the Sunrise 2nd Edition Learning to Read program.

The first-grade reader, I Wonder, is full of delightful age-level stories and poems that develop critical reading skills while building character. Students will learn about honesty from Betsy and Billy, the importance of prayer from Willy, good habits from Bruce the door slammer, and trust from Bennie, who was afraid of thunder.

The accompanying five new LightUnits helps students practice phonics, reading comprehension, and analytical thinking. Two quizzes and a test in each of the LightUnits measure the child’s mastery of the material.

The Teacher’s Guide includes a reproduction of each workbook page with answers and detailed instructions for explaining the exercises, class discussion, and silent and oral reading activities. Even beginning teachers should be successful when using this manual to teach reading.

While the I Wonder reader has not changed, the student and teacher material has been updated and are not compatible between editions.

Grade 4

Sunrise Edition

The stories in the reader Bridges Beyond take the child to the past, to the animal world, and to other lands. Meet young Noah Webster who was fascinated with words, a fox who outwitted his enemy, a seal who wouldn’t swim, a French girl who puzzles over a mystery, and a Dutch family who wonders whether war will stop the stork’s return.

Each reader selection speaks of God’s power and principles. In addition, the LightUnits build reading and study skills. Students learn to “read between the lines," recognize basic story construction, understand the mechanics of poetry, and distinguish between fact and opinion.

Answer keys are in list format and are required for the course. The optional teacher’s guide provides brief teacher’s notes, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.

Reading_grade_6

Grade 6

Sunrise Edition

Sixth graders need examples of courageous men and women to follow. The reader Calls to Courage provides such examples: George Washington Carver, who coaxed poor Alabama soil into production; young Jakob, who discovered the meaning of the word responsibility; Judith, who found that maturity doesn’t come in the mail; Jack, the slave who found the most important thing in the world and suffered so others could have it too.

Along with character-building themes of contentment, courage, and commitment, the accompanying LightUnits help students understand and think deeply about what they read. They expand their reading comprehension and evaluation skills and apply important lessons to their own lives. Two or three lessons a week cover a year’s work.

An optional Teacher’s Guide provides brief teacher’s notes, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.

Two or three lessons a week provide a year’s work.
