This one hour class will incorporate reading aloud and repetition to increase comprehension. We will read three novels throughout the year. After we read the novel, we will work on a matching reader’s theater script to improve comprehension and fluency. At the end of each semester, we will perform a reader’s theater script during a recital. (Students will hold and read their scripts.) This class will concentrate on the beauty of the written word in a low-pressure environment. There will be no essay writing. Rather, we will focus on reading fluency, spelling, and vocabulary.
