Master the skills needed to be an effective reader! Depending on your grade level, you will learn about things such as: how to find the main idea, increasing your vocabulary, drawing conclusions from what is read, spotting an author's purpose & point of view, sequencing, cause and effect, comparison and contrast, and inference. You will learn how to apply these strategies and skills to your reading comprehension and become better independent readers during the school year. You will be reading both non-fictional material and grade appropriate literature. Reading material and manipulatives are provided for use in class.
