Weekly routine includes copybook, narration from accompanying literature, grammar and spelling lessons based on copybook model, nature study, and picture study. Primer Two reviews and builds on Primer One skills, adding a gentle introduction to eight parts of speech in the context of literary selection. Students become familiar with simile, personification, onomatopoeia, and alliteration.
Requires accompanying Primer Two Teaching Helps. Primer Two Autumn, Primer Two Winter, and Primer Two Spring are sequential in skills, but can be used out of sequence if necessary.Before beginning Primer Two, a student should have achieved intermediate spelling and phonics proficiency, be able to read beginning chapter books with basic fluency, and be able to copy sentences and short paragraphs. Primer Two is very generally appropriate for 3rd-4th grade students but could be used very effectively by older students as well.
