Last year, my students enjoyed eight novels during the school year. This amount of reading directly benefitted their vocabulary, reading endurance, imagination, and writing. This large amount of reading played a direct role in our EOG growth.
This year, my goal is to have my classes complete one novel a month together, excluding Literacy Block novels. I have hand-picked every novel on my reading list - they are all high-interest novels and relevant to many political and social issues that our country faces today. I encourage all parents and guardians who love to read to join us in our reading adventures so that you may discuss these topics with your scholar while enjoying a great book too!
