Language Arts: 1st - 4th

Reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar – all are important in developing a rich and thorough language knowledge for students. We will use fables, fairy tales, short stories, and novel excerpts to learn new vocabulary and proper grammar and develop cognitive thinking skills. We will also learn the many uses of the dictionary and thesaurus as students express their thoughts through short journal writings.


**Students will be provided with a language arts binder for the year to organize their classwork and homework.**

**Chapter Books to Purchase: This will be communicated throughout the year.**


Language Arts: 5th - 8th

Daniel Defoe and Shakespeare, Louisa May Alcott and C. S. Lewis – reading great authors teaches students how selective vocabulary and correct grammar can lead to effective, exceptional literature. Students will use writings by these and other authors to expand their vocabulary and develop grammar skills useful as they move through different genres of writing.
