Literature for Grades 3-5 (2:00)
Instructor: Windy Sasser
Curriculum: MIX - Purchased and Self Developed
Homework Description: Reading 15-20 minutes 1-2 times per week
Duration: 26 weeks
Course Description: Exploring living books and wonderful authors past and present. What does it take to earn a Caldocott Award, or the Coretta Scott King Award? What about the Newberry Medal, the Horn Book Award and the Hans Christian Anderson Award? Literature brings to life things that we cannot see or may not have been able to experience in our lifetime. Literature is a way to use words to draw a reader into the authors’ minds, imaginations and dreams, real and make believe. Join me on a literary adventure as we explore fiction, non fiction, historical fiction and many more. Be inspired by the words of many authors and maybe one day you’ll become a published author too. A book list will be sent out ahead of class.
