High Noon Reading-Level 2

by Rick Brownell, MA / Deb Akers

High Noon Reading is a reading intervention program for students grades 3 and above based on best practices in reading instruction and High Noons tradition of creating appropriate materials for students reading substantially below grade level.

High Noon Reading was designed with the remedial reading teacher in mind. The program can be used with small groups or one-on-one, and has the following features:

  • multiple entry points
  • flexible pacing
  • easy-to-use lesson plans
  • continuous review
  • on-going evaluation

    High Noon Reading focuses on the development of decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills while also building skills in spelling, writing, and vocabulary. Each level follows a sequence of skills that correlates to the skills typically taught in classroom reading programs.

    High Noon Reading, Level 1 contains 65 lessons focusing on one-syllable words. Skills taught include decoding words that have short and long vowels, consonant blends and digraphs, variant vowels, diphthongs, spelling patterns, and sight words.

    High Noon Reading, Level 2 contains 65 lessons focusing on multisyllable words. Skills taught include decoding words that have inflectional endings, prefixes and suffixes, and other forms of multiple syllables.

    Each lesson begins with a review of previously taught decoding skills and is followed by the presentation of a new skill. Skills are applied as students read the lessons passage and are practiced as teacher-directed and independent workbook activities are completed. Practice lessons provide material that can be used with students who require additional instruction and practice. Teacher preparation is minimal, and each lesson can be completed in 30-40 minutes.

    Teachers Edition:
    For each level, this guide provides everything you will need for planning and teaching the program. Each four-page lesson plan includes reduced pages from the Student Book and Workbook. Lesson steps are listed and scripting is provided to model the teaching of new concepts. Review of the "teaching" script is the only preparation suggested for each lesson, and this can be completed in about five minutes.

    Student Book:
    Each lesson in the Student Book is presented in a consistent format that is easy for students to follow. Part A reviews decoding skills. Part B teaches a new decoding concept. Part C presents a passage in which students apply previously learned decoding skills and develop fluency and comprehension skills. (nonconsumable) Save 10% when purchasing the Student Book 5 pack.

    Each lesson is concluded with workbook activities that give skill practice. The workbook includes teacher-directed and independent activities that develop decoding, comprehension, spelling, writing, and vocabulary. (consumable) Save 10% when purchasing the Workook 5 pack.
