In reading this year, we will be following the Reader's Workshop model. This framework provides readers with opportunities to read "just right books" at their interest level, while they practice explicit reading strategies. The ultimate goal of Readers Workshop is to develop independent, passionate, life-long readers!
Students will have independent reading time in school each day. Every Monday through Thursday evening, students should read for at least 20 minutes and log their reading. Weekend reading is encouraged.
