One of the most effective ways to build reading comprehension is through read aloud. In fourth grade, we are reading The PS Brothers by Maribeth Boelts- a novel about two friends who overcome their personal struggles to start a business. They also uncover a crime that could threaten their dream of owning a dog. In fifth grade, we are reading Wonder by RJ Palacio. In this novel, Auggie struggles with going to public school for the first time as a fifth grader. His facial deformity often frightens people, and makes everyone treat him differently. His struggles to adjust to school and make people see him as ordinary are both funny and sad. So far, these books are big hits!
