Elementary Literature Class

Dive into important and beautiful works of literature

Summer offers students more time to read for enjoyment, but many elementary students find it difficult to keep to a reading routine. Our summer literature class will help upper elementary students maintain a regular reading habit as they explore timeless, beautiful works of age-appropriate literature. We will read select chapters aloud in class so that students have ample opportunity to engage with and connect to the story. We will also engage in guided group discussion to help students draw insights and form opinions.
