This year, students will do a combination of Whole Group Reading, Small Group Reading, and Independent Reading.
WHOLE GROUP READING: Students will listen to, discuss, and respond in writing to questions based on the Common Core.
SMALL GROUP READING: Small groups of students will read leveled literature and answer questions in writing based on the Common Core.
INDEPENDENT READING: Students will be reading “just right” literature. These books should be interesting to them and at an appropriate reading level. They’ll check in frequently and be encouraged to use comprehension strategies that we are working on. Finally, they’ll respond in writing using the BOOK BUZZ format.
