Course Description

Literacy extra is a fun and challenging class that lasts for one term.  Students will learn to write like a professional and read independently and actively.  We will actively and critically read short stories, nonfiction, and a play.  Throughout the class we will have read alouds that not only aid in oral comprehension, visualizing, and predicting, but they also will spark curiosity and inspire the students to continue reading the selection.  In addition, this term students will be reading the marvelous novel, Wonder, by R.J. Palacio.  Wonder is a memorable novel that teaches us to always, "choose kind."  It is my goal that every student leaves my class enjoying reading and having learned a few tips in becoming a colorful writer.
