Language Arts: 1st – 5th

Through classic children’s literature - Alice in Wonderland, Mother Goose, Encyclopedia Brown and more – students learn key concepts and skills of phonics, spelling, reading, grammar, composition, research and study skills, higher order thinking skills, creative expression, and penmanship. Each week’s lesson uses poetry and excerpts from short stories and novels to practice lesson concepts and review. Students will also develop vocabulary, correct grammar, and critical thinking skills through short journal writing.

Essential references include an online and print atlas and specific maps, dictionary and thesaurus.

Homework: Placement Tests determine which Learning Language Arts Through Literature curriculum you need to purchase for each child to complete their homework on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday next year. Print and administer these tests; then text or call me for questions. https://www.commonsensepress.com/placementtests.html
