We will read one chapter book per Session. We will use the theme of the book to inspire class discussion, projects, storytelling, writing, art work and games. We will also use the text to develop comprehension, identify character, setting & plot, and define vocabulary words using context clues. Our main goal will be to connect with each story in a way that is fun, imaginative and meaningful to the class.
Books will be chosen keeping in mind that our students have varied interests and reading levels.
Each week, students will be asked to read an assigned number of chapters at home. There will be several homework questions to answer based on the reading. This will enable students to participate fully in class discussions and activities. While it is always nice to have an actual copy of a book, ebooks and audiobooks are fine as well.
