The Reading Workshop course is designed for students entering grade 3 in the fall. Students will develop essential reading and study skills as they are introduced to various strategies that will help them to read faster, more accurately, and with greater reading comprehension. This course is structured to allow for simple, predictable transitions from reading to play. Students will understand meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, use context to confirm or self-correct word recognition and understanding, rereading as necessary. In addition, students will practice and fine-tune spelling, key word and inference elimination strategies.
