Thanks for visiting our reading page! I will update this page weekly with what we are doing in class. I will also try to include an updated list of our vocabulary words and a few links to some great resources. Be sure to check back soon!
Need a good book to read? I LOVE pulling books from the Golden Sower Nominee list each year. I haven't had a Golden Sower Nominee book disappoint me yet. :) You'll be able to find these books at our Saddlebrook Library as well as in our classroom library. A couple of my favorites include: The Familiars, Out of My Mind, and Jake & Lily.
