In 5th grade Reading, students build critical thinking skills in literature through novel studies across the genres. Grammar and writing skills are built in through a variety of reading response activities and book studies. My classroom theme is Reading -- there's an app for that. You'll notice lots of apps and social media icons in my room to use relevant real-life content to reinforce my teaching. Even though we'll read and dissect four novels this year, we'll use story elements from one of my favorite classics, The Wizard of Oz, as our foundation throughout the year. There are such great nuggets of knowledge we'll find on our e-yellow brick road. During this journey, we'll better understand how fiction, expository/informational text, poetry, biographies and research each hold a secret to help us reach our destination.
