Reading units are currently being developed and are thematic. (See below for unit titles.) We follow the Reading Workshop approach which includes a short mini-lesson and guided reading groups. Students work independently on Cloze activites, reading comprehension pages, follow-up to guided groups, silent reading, as well as cursive, spelling, and other topics of learning.
