Class Experience

Students will improve their reading comprehension and test taking skills by mastering 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade academic vocabulary terms.  Students will become confident in their ability to read and understand grade-level words though interactive games.  
Students may continue to practice the week's vocabulary words through the Kahoot application code given at the end of each class. 

An optional homework assignment will be posted to the classroom at the end of each class.  Students may complete this and send it back to me to be checked if they so choose. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
