Our reading class will meet at least 3 times a cycle and focus on reading skills that will help with reading accuracy and comprehension. Our small group size provides the opportunity to give individual attention and practice on skills and strategies necessary in reading. The focus of instruction is to gain adequate exposure to a range of texts and tasks expected from the Common Core Standards. Lessons will support the Journey's Reading Program (aligned to Common Core) in the classroom with emphasis on vocabulary building and strategies that foster comprehension (visualizing, making connections between various types of text, predicting, making inferences, summarizing , determining importance, etc...). Improving oral reading fluency remains a goal throughout the course of the year and will monitored throughout.
