An engaging way to learn reading comprehension skills!

Bookworms: The Reading Comprehension Class

Using the wonderfully engaging books of famed children’s author Bill Peet, we focus on such reading comprehension skills as context clues, literature themes, author’s message, making predictions, activating background knowledge and making connections in order to boost student reading levels and promote a love of literature. Our “Bookworms” also create projects related to a Bill Peet story of their choice including story maps, screenplays, autobiographies and "Monster stories." Our students invite parents to a “Book Gallery” in the final class to show off their creations.

Note: This class is specifically designed for 3rd-5th grade readers.
