About the TCRWP Virtual Summer School Curriculum

These all-new, standards-based—and joyful—summer school units/modules were developed around what we observe to be the most important needs of students as they emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic and prepare for the new school year. We offer the units in a suggested sequence, but, because we know that some schools and districts will wish to plan their own sequence, each module can be purchased a-la-carte as well. See the “Subscription Terms and Conditions” section on this webpage for more information.

About this Unit/Module

Daily warm-up activities for rising second graders include manipulation of phonemes, of single consonants, blends, digraphs, short vowels, and long vowels. Not only do students receive explicit practice in auditory manipulation, they will also link this to phonics through dictation and making words. As well, students will review many foundational phonics skills such as blends, digraphs, CVCe, common vowel teams such as ee, ea, and other vowel teams such as ai, ay, oa, oi, oy, oo. They will get extra practice with patterns and rhymes such as -ill, -ock, -oon, -own, -ot, -ook, -at, -ick, -ake, -ack, -ight, -ice and also the R-controlled vowels.
