The students will be responsible for completing 1 independent reading book a month. This book will be chosen by the student and should be a "just right book" for their ability level. Students are to bring this book to school everyday and they are encouraged to read it at home as well.
These books will be selected by the teacher and will be discussed in small groups of 6-8 students. These are groups of like readers who are reading the same book at the same pace. Groups will meet during the week. These books generally stay in the classroom.
