Students are wrapping up their unit covering Readers Theater, which helps work on vocal expression, tone and pace. The Mid-Term Exam will be on January 22nd. Students were given an exam outline to study from before the Christmas Break.
We will be starting our Novel Study of The Giver just after exams.
The language arts curriculum involves many components that are designed to provide students with opportunities to develop skills in all of the language arts components: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, Viewing, and Representing.
We will aim to touch on the following areas: novel studies, short stories, poetry, spelling, grammar, reader’s theater, T.U.S.C., book reports, speeches, writing an essay and research projects. We will be reading The Giver and Underground to Canada.
