Reading is one of the most important foundations for
learning, enjoyment, and enrichment. This class focuses on building the
TAKS reading comprehension skills of: identifying the unstated main
idea, producing summaries, using context to support word meaning,
analyzing characters, recognizing story problems or plot, sequencing
events, drawing inferences, and distinguishing fact from opinion.
Students will read three delightful chapter books, will
be given daily TAKS formatted quizzes over these chapters, and use the
“Reading Process” to break down reading passages and support
comprehension. Weekly benchmarks will be given to identify student
strengths and weaknesses. Reading games and rewards will motivate
reluctant learners. Come and enjoy the fun of reading!
Courses are offered for students at each level - Elementary and Middle School.
