Reading    Language Arts/Reading


Students will be learning new vocabulary, decoding skills, and comprehension skills, i.e. cause/effect, mood, theme, character analysis, etc.  They will be reading personal library selections and participating in the Accelerated Reader Program. Other literature selections may include class novel studies or book groups/literacy circles. English skills will include using standard grammar, identifying the parts of speech, and writing in a variety of genres. Spelling focuses on various spelling patterns as vocabulary correlates with reading and/or frequently used words in writing.
