    Throughout the school year, we will be following the Reader's Workshop curriculum. One goal is to help all of our students become avid readers. We will help students create their identities as people who care about reading, create a social life that revolves around shared books. We will help students develop a sense of personal agency about their reading lives, taking responsibility for becoming the kinds of readers who not only make sense of books but also let books change their lives. We will continue to support children in strengthening their reading behaviors-- helping them to self-select books that are just right in level and interest, collect and study data about their reading rates and volumes and push themselves to read with increasing stamina, fluency and volume.
