Reading Enrichment

Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grades
Faith Christian School offers a reading enrichment course for third, fourth, and fifth grade students who are academically gifted in reading, language arts, and thinking skills. The students are taken out of the regular classroom and join a small multi-age group of up to twelve students. The third and fourth grade students work together as one class, and the fifth grade students make up a separate group. The “Great Books” class meets four days per week for fifty minutes per class period. The students use the Junior Great Books Curriculum of interpretive reading, writing, and discussion. This curriculum stresses reading comprehension, excellence in writing, critical thinking, and effective speaking and listening skills. The stories that are included in the Junior Great Books Curriculum are rich works of literature by acclaimed authors. As students interact with the stories in the text, comparisons are made between the story, the author’s purpose, and Biblical truth. The Junior Great Books Curriculum proves to be challenging and fun for our students.
