Float in a hot air balloon, soar with a straight blue arrow, and glide with a prissy puddle duck in Through the Skies! This book is filled with children favorites, including 12 stories and 8 poems. This is the fifth book (2e) in the Abeka Reading Program for 2nd grade. Each of the ten books gradually advances your students’ reading skills. Gr. 2.
- Character-building truths. As your students read stories about children and animals, they will learn many character qualities.
- Literary terms. Review of all literary parts of a story – terms, title, author, character, main character, plot, setting, and moral.
- Creative Writing. Your students can celebrate their favorite character in the back of the book for creative writing and creative drawing. These activities enhance and assess comprehension of story book characters.
- Thinking Skills. At the end of stories, “Think About It” and “What Do You Think?” factual and inferential questions help to develop thinking skills and apply to real life situations.
A Beka does not sell their materials to retail bookstores, preferring instead to sell their products through representatives and through their website. As a result, we can offer only used A Beka, and can't guarantee we'll get it. We offer here the current retail price of the book for your information, but if our page does not say "Buy Used," we do not have a copy.
