This is a literature class. There will be read alouds every week. Many of them will be picture books. These are the books of childhood, the books that everyone should know and be able to talk about. Students will sit and listen to the stories and we will talk about them and the lessons they teach. Each student will have to bring a favorite book at some point during the semester and lead the discussion about that book. There may be writing or drawing during the class. Mostly, there will be reading, listening, and social interactions.
