This year in Reading, we will:
*expand vocabulary when reading
* read and demonstrate comprehension of nonfictional and fictional texts, narrative nonfiction, and poetry
*Reading Strategies/Skills: Students will be learning and practicing different skills that help with their reading comprehension. We will be working on story elements, main idea, cause/effect, text features and structural patterns during the 1st nine weeks.
*NTF: Students will be working with and studying 7 words every two weeks. They will learn how to break apart these words into prefix/root word/suffix and understand the meaning of each.
*Read to Self: Students should be reading at home 20-30 minutes each night to improve their fluency and comprehension skills.
