Welcome to 4th Grade Wide Reading
In 4th grade, ELA is split between two blocks. One block will focus on grade level whole group instruction. The other block, Wide Reading, will focus on growing all readers in small groups. During Wide Reading students will strengthen a variety of reading skills, including phonics, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary based on individual need. In small groups, students will work to increase proficiency with targeted skills, build reading stamina and deepen critical thinking skills in response to reading. During the first month, students will also be assessed to determine their initial reading levels. Throughout the rest of the year, reading growth will be assessed and students will set their own quarterly goals.
