We are well on our way in our reading program. Today students completed a reading survey. Each day students will read personally chosen novels and are encouraged to select a variety of genres. They are invited to read at home each night, especially if they missed our class reading time. In class students will be sharing their reading in a variety of ways including book talks, discussions and visual representations.
