    Reading Workshop

     Dear Parents, 


    We will be continuing to do Reader's Workshop model this year.  Students will be exposed to a wide range of authentic literature, and will work with books that are considered to be at "just right" level in order to help build fluency and comprehension.  Students will learn comprehension strategies during whole group and small group instruction, and will apply their understanding in a variety of ways.  The Reader's Worksop facilitates an environment of strong independent thinkers and readers.  

    We are currently starting our nonfiction unit in Reader's Workshop.  


     We will be starting Topic 1.    

    You can reach me at crcastro@jacksonsd.org or jgallipoli@jacksonsd.org
