This year we will be doing a meld of theme based learning and reading workshop. We look forward to learning about topics like nocturnal animals, polar regions, rainforests, fairy tales, and American Symbols, among others. We will also work towards personalized instruction through the use of conferring and the reading workshop model.

You can help your child with their reading skills by reading with them each night. This can be you reading to them but should also include some practice with reading aloud. As your child's fluency increases you should encourage them to read as they would speak, adding expression and emotion to their voice.
