Mrs. Vreones' Reading and Language Arts Class


This year we will begin the school year by reading Hoot by fellow Floridian, Carl Hiaasen. Our focus will be to learn about figurative language and to explore such concepts as setting, character development, plot development, and vocabulary skills. The class will discuss such themes as bullying, environmental protection, family conflicts and standing up for what is right. This novel is a great way to integrate the Reading and Language Arts areas with what the students are learning about Florida in both Social Studies and Science.
