Class Description
Monday, 11:20 AM to 12:20 PM
Loving Literature  
Teacher:  Kate Smith
Age:  7 - 9
Prerequisites:  Ability to read a short, unfamiliar picture book comfortably, and be able to write a complete sentence.  If already reading chapter books proficiently, this class will most likely not be the right fit.
Cost:  $200 tuition per year, paid in four $50 payments;
$25 copy/supply fee per year, paid in one $25 payment
Cost Details:  Includes copies, curriculum, binders, and books that will be read in class
Text:  1) A few chapter books TBD at start of classes for the spring.  Can be library, used, or new. 
2) Set of colored pencils, scissors, glue stick, and sharpened pencils for each class.
Description: In Loving Literature, students will engage weekly with books that inspire them.  We will begin with enjoying all types of picture books, both fiction and non-fiction, and as we move through the year, introduce short chapter books.  Students will add each week to an interactive literature journal, where they will be introduced to important elements of literary analysis such as figurative language, point of view, and theme as well as learn how to respond to comprehension questions and activities.  They will practice group discussion skills of questioning, listening, and engaging thoughtfully with their peers and with ideas expressed in the books.  We will also enjoy occasional story-inspired games and crafts, and practice public speaking.  Copy work, dictation, art, and learning new vocabulary will also be included.  This class is for the 7 - 9 year old reader who is not reading chapter books independently yet but has moved beyond basic decoding and is comfortable writing a complete sentence.  There will be occasional homework.
