To Read or Not to Read? That is the Question! There's another world to discover and explore.
Let's take the journey!
Do you love to read? If you do, what genre' of books do you read? Are you not really into reading at all, but read because you are required to do so? I know and realize that everyone doesn't enjoy reading, but reading is part of our daily life, even with all of our technology.
In Challenge Reading class, we'll read to learn and analyze new information, to become better writers, and to read simply for enjoyment. As part of our instructional program, we have our reading anthology (an anthology is a collection of stories), called Storytown. Through Storytown we will explore different genres of literature, responding and interacting with the texts, while learning about the authors too!
Further, we'll extend and develop our vocabularies by using a program called "Word Wisdom",based on the Latin and Greek roots, prefixes and suffixes. Vocabulary developmentwill be enhanced by reading novels and nonfiction selections. We'll actively participate in Literature Circles, by reading and sharing literary elements, and text structures.
One of the best ways to explore literature is to take the time to "Dive Right In."I'm looking forward to a great year and celebrating your reading goals and accomplishments! Mrs. Munro
