What is a 2G Reader?
Power Words: 2G readers will know and use 120 very high-frequency Power Words as a reliable and familiar support framework when reading. They will be able to read these words in books they have never seen before and out of context (lists, flash cards, etc.) at Flash Speed. Power Words provide “islands of certainty” from which emergent readers can navigate the unknown. The combined Power Words in 1G and 2G make up 50% of all adult and student writing.
Initial Blends & Digraphs: When students come to a word they don’t know, they will successfully use initial blends and digraphs as clues.
