The Grand Tour, Levels 2 & 3 take students on a Cross-Country tour of the U.S.A.! With the Grand Tour, students are introduced to different states, cultures and communities across the United States. Designed for students who have mastered the 36 steps of the Level 1 program, the emphasis is on reading as a means to learning.
Reading, Writing, Cursive, Spelling, Grammar and Comprehension are integrated with social studies as students tour the country.
Students Read-To-Learn while taking an imaginary “tour” of the states on the southern and eastern borders of the United States, at the same time mastering language arts skills and geography!
Packed with Crossword Puzzles, Word Searches, Decoding Games, Spelling Codes, Matching Games, Short Stories, Riddles, Fill-in-the-Blank, and Connected Writing activities, our Grand Tour student texts are so much fun students won’t even think of them as school work! With Grand Tour I and II, children learn English grammar, build a powerful 1,440-word spelling vocabulary, and have opportunities to transition from manuscript to cursive writing.
