Our grade 4 to 6 students improve their English at their own pace. Most students come on Saturdays from 1 to 3pm. There is time for talking, reading, doing our workbooks and discussing a story from the “True Stories” series and of course playing board games, card games and outdoor games on the yard. We practice plays in the fall and enjoy cooking and crafts for special events like Christmas and Valentine’s.
Our students range in ability from reading books like “Frog and Toad” to “Nate the Great” and “Magic Tree House”. We read for pleasure and talk about what we read.
Here are links to the books we read and discuss.
