During Reader’s Workshop we will be reading in a variety of genres over the course of the year. Reading skills will be taught as they apply to the genre we are studying. Students will also be expected to read independently on a daily basis. I will be communicating with students about their independent reading on a weekly basis in their Reader’s Notebook (provided by the school). This notebook will also give students a place to keep a log of their reading throughout the year, and record information for Book Club discussions. The Reader’s Notebook weekly letters may be done as a homework assignment. It is needed daily in class, so when it comes home, make sure it gets back into the backpack for school the next day!
