This site will be updated at least once of week with the assignments and any other class activities that will be going on in the Reading Seminar Class. We will spend the year increasing our vocabulary and learning how to read a variety of material including news reports, journal entries, textbooks, directions, magazine articles, and documents like maps, diaries, and logs. Notice and Note - Nonfiction is the base of many of the things that we do.
Parents wishing access to student's Google classroom should email Mrs. Haring and provide the preferred email address.
