Choice Reading

Each month students will choose one book to read in addition to what we are reading in class. At the end of the month, students will write a concise response to the book, designed to show their understanding and interaction with the text. The purpose of choice reading is to promote consistent and pleasurable reading, while also improving reading fluency and comprehension.
