    Our Rockin' Reader's Workshop!

    Reader's Workshop is always my favorite part of the day! I love watching young readers blossom. I am sure we will have MANY great adventures in reading this year!

    This month in reading, we will be 

    • determining our purpose for reading a story, 
    • determining the author's purpose for writing a story
    • describing story elements (character,setting ,problem, solution, beginning,middle,end)
    • describe the elements of non fiction texts
    • establish a purposr for reading
    • read on a level G or higher

    Please make sure that your child reads all of the books, passages and words in their take home book bag each night and brings them back to school each day.  

    Please do not write in the color-soft bound readers.  These books will be assigned to your child and will need to be replaced if they are lost or damaged.  

    Students are welcomed to (encouraged to) write in and color any black and white paper books that they are given. (Reading A to Z books)
