Boost Vocabulary while Battling Bad Guys
This book club features a collection of swash buckling adventures that withstand the test of time. Reading adaptations (shortened versions) of American classics, your kiddo will gobble up each book with enthusiasm. Following our reading time, students will discuss the story before extending our conversation using drawings, creative writing, or Kahoot.
Previous experience with writing a narrative essay is required.
This course is designed to develop the ability to express an opinion with clear supporting reasons and to build critical thinking skills. Students begin to move away from first person focused writing and start to apply their experience to world views.
*If your child is Dyslexic special adjustments can be made to ensure your child’s successful engagement. Please contact us prior to registration. To discuss your child’s needs.
What does a typical day in class look like?
In class we will then take turns reading the story out loud, then discuss the stories events. We’ll analyze the morals of the story before diving into our second book. The last 20 minutes of class will allow students to respond to the story either creating a written response, a poem, a collage, craft, or drawing.
