Charlotte’s Web, Roll of Thunder, Heidi
Some books are fads and some are classics that withstand the test of time. Less gimmicky than many of today’s modern fiction books, these books prove that stories can be just as fun even if they don’t have magical creatures in mythical lands. Each week students will read out loud in a group setting* before diving into our project of the week. Projects will vary and include: written responses, poems, collages, crafts, and drawings.
*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 take turns reading the story out loud, then discuss the stories events. We’ll analyze the morals of the story and talk through unfamiliar words. The last 20 minutes of class will allow students to respond to the story either creating a written response, a poem, a collage, craft, drawing, or playing Kahoot.
