Strengthening our reading skills!!  Reading books can take us on journeys we never thought possible!  In this class, I will read aloud to them several books: A Single Shard (Linda Sue Park), Summer of the Monkeys (Wilson Rawls), The Magicians Nephew (C.S. Lewis), and The One and Only Ivan (Kathrine Applegate).  The two books to purchase are A Single Shard (first semester) and The Magician's Nephew (second semester).  These can be found at Half Price Books, Amazon, and the library.  We will be working on vocabulary, themes, cause, and effect, problem-solving, group discussions, making comparisons to our lives, character comparison, and journal entries.  The other two books will be read aloud with group discussions and projects.  Most work will be done in class.  They will go home with one sheet of homework.  I hope to instill a love of listening to and reading stories.  I hope to encourage them to reflect on the lessons learned from characters who become our friends and strengthen our own values. 


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.

From Characters to Friends.
