Join us for an adventure! We read selections from such classics as Little Women, The Secret Garden, and Black Beauty, and discuss what the characters did, learned, and how they changed. Then we predict what will happen next!

Class Experience

US Grade 3 - 6
  • In this class students will listen to selections of classic literature and discuss the elements of plot, analyze the characters, discuss the setting and make predictions about the story. Reading comprehension is the main learning goal, and we will explore during the course of the class how authors use literary devices such as foreshadowing, flashback, and metaphor to communicate with the reader. We will also learn how to make predictions about what may happen next.
Having taught literature to young readers in homeschool co-ops, I know reading aloud increases comprehension, expands vocabulary, and creates a real love of reading that will last a lifetime. Each one of my own children love reading, and I now enjoy listening to them read aloud to our family. We grow and learn reading classic literature together, analyzing the characters, comparing and contrasting the worlds of yesterday to our modern times, and gain understanding through the trials the characters face. Join us for an adventure!
