Reading: Strengthening of fiction & non-fiction comprehension
skills will be taught throughout the school year. Students will learn
to read for different purposes. As a class, students will read chapter
novels (many of which are integrated into our Social Studies curriculum)
& complete comprehension worksheets & projects to demonstrate
what they have learned. Independently,
students will need to read at least 3 books during the first trimester
& complete 3 book summary projects. In general, one book summary
project is due each month.
students will need to read at home for at least 30 minutes, 5 times
each week and record their time on their reading note. Reading notes
are due every Monday morning (or first day of each week).
