• Reading: This year we will take a closer look at main idea and details, story elements, text features, poetry, Greek mythology, inferencing, vocabulary, and providing supporting evidence. We will also be comparing texts, while incorporating information from various text to write or speak about it. We will conduct small groups each day that specifically meet the needs of your child. During this time we will focus on comprehension, fluency, and accuracy. We will also model skills and strategies that will equip them to become a better reader!
