In our classroom, students work hard to expand their reading skills through the use of many different modalities. Novel and short story studies, vidoe clips, journaling, whole group discussions & small group collaboration are just a few of the ways we work to increase our knowledge base. All voices, ideas and opinions are welcome! During independent reading, students are working to increase their reading stamina. We have a comprehensive classroom library that includes titles such as Captain Underpants & Ricky Ricotta. For older students, there is a large collection of age appropriate books, including graphic novels. There are also various audio books for students to listen to!There are so many interesting topics for us to explore that students may forget they are learning and not just having fun!
