Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! May this be an extraordinary year of reading.
Reading is fun. l look forward to the many adventures that abound in the books we will be reading this year. We will have fun reading fiction books, nonfiction books, poetry, dramas, and a variety of short stories.
Reading has a purpose. The purpose of reading is to learn about other people, places, and things that we can relate to in our lives. In order to do that we must be able to comprehend, predict, infer, question, visualize, and connect to what we are reading. My desire and goal for my students is for them to learn to do these things well and to enjoy reading.
Reading has requirements. In order to reach this goal, my students will need to come to class ready to learn and to apply what they are learning in activities and assessments. They will be graded on their participation, their classwork, and their earned AR points.
Come join us this year and be a "Spotacular" reader!!
