In Language Arts, students will read great books and other forms of texts in both fiction and nonfiction. Students will not only read interesting texts, they will analyze both fiction and nonfiction to understand it even better. They will learn about a wide variety of skills, including author’s purpose, main idea, inferencing, predicting, cause and effect, fact and opinion, synonyms, antonyms, word meanings, homophones and so much more! Students will be reading both paper and online text independently so they can work on building comprehension and fluency. They will review and be introduced to words that will expand their vocabulary. In writing workshop they will learn how to write with voice, correct grammar, and will expand their ideas. By the end of the year they will be awesome authors!
