Reading Update

Our readers began investigating the genre of fairy tales and the ingredients all fairy tales have, including: good/evil characters, once upon a time, happily ever after, magic, royalty and maybe even a lesson that was learned.    Today we looked at a website called Speakaboos where children can read different genres of text including fairy tales.   We will have an opportunity to review comprehension strategies, reading with expression (getting into character) and word decoding skills through our study.  Looking forward to diving into this imaginative group of books!
