Reading

For reading the class is going over genres. We are currently reading mystery as our genre. The book the class is reading is the first in the series of 39 Clues.  
 
Students are also practicing building up their stamina during silent reading. We are up to 20-25 minutes!
 
Below is the 'five finger rule,' it is a great resource in helping students find a just right book.
