Location: Rocklin

Day & Time: Thursday 12:30-1:40 

Grade: 5th-6th 

Mentor: Jen Fletcher 



Students will read an excerpt from well-known children’s literature each week, then write an expository paragraph—such as narrative, descriptive, comparison, etc. This develops students’ reading comprehension skills in several ways, including (but not limited to): discerning the important points of a story vs. details, recognizing chronological order, representing an author’s work accurately, and eliminating any excess words (no padding/no fluff).


In this class, students will be :

  • reading a wide variety of excellent children’s literature
  • listening to and speaking written language
  • writing expository paragraphs
  • developing sophisticated written syntax and advanced comprehension through sentence combining clauses and phrases


Required materials: TBD


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.
