In September we focus on increasing our stamina to work independently during Read to Self, Read to Others, Work on Writing, Work and Words and Razz Kids. Teachers will be meeting with small groups and conferencing with individual students. Daily 5 is how we schedule our language block. CAFE is what we study during this time. CAFE is an acronym for the four major components of reading. They are:
- C for Comprehension
- A for Accuracy
- F for Fluency
- E for Expanding Vocabulary
The children will learn reading strategies within each category. These strategies will become tools for the children to use to help themselves become better readers and writers.
