About this course

Reading is fundamental to developing the mind, imagination, curiosity, and confidence. This course is designed with a multifaceted, student-centered approach to provide students with mini lessons and fun activities that will give them opportunities to expand and develop their vocabulary, grammar and mechanics, to gain confidence with reading out loud and independently, as well as to improve reading comprehension skills.

What you'll learn
