Day & Time: Wednesday 11:55-1:05
Mentor: Vicki Thomas
Each month we will highlight a new favorite author. With my guidance students will learn to compare and contrast books, analyze text and illustrations as well as exploring story elements and comprehension strategies. With exposure to books from different types of literary voices and styles, it is my goal that the children will increase their love for literature. I will be reading the stories to the class in my best theatrical voice, the children do not need to know how to read. Each book read and discussed will be followed with a hands on craft or activity that is related to the story. Some of the authors highlighted will include Kevin Henkes, Mo Willems, Jan Brett, David Shannon and Eric Carle.
All classes are full year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
