The class has been divided between boys and girls and each student has been given a book at or slightly above their reading level. Each group will meet with me for approximately 15 minutes on their assigned day of the week for discussion and skill application. The group will need to read the assigned chapter before their next meeting day. These novel studies will not replace the Wonders reading series but will be used as supplemental.
