THIRD-GRADE READING & VOCABULARY ADVANCEMENT
Entering third grade – This class is designed for students reading at or near the third-grade level who wish to strengthen their reading foundation. The course will focus on improving fluency, increasing reading comprehension and developing vocabulary. Through a reader’s workshop framework, students will have the opportunity to develop their skills, strategies and affective knowledge related to the reading process. Students will apply these skills in their study of grade-level appropriate poetry, fiction, non-fiction and theatre. Because learning is enhanced when the reading and writing processes are connected, writing will be integrated into the program.
